QUESTION: CMR, I received a photo with some details last night stating that a young man had been arrested and involved in the Captain Bakery's robbery last night. It stated that “Hearing its Tyreck Johnson from Prospect?” and then sent a picture of him. Is this true?
ANSWER: We are happy to report that this one is false. Tariq's mother took to social media to confirm that her son was NOT involved in last night's incident and is not involved in any gangs. He's from Newlands and not Prospect.
She shared with CMR:
“I would like his name clear up as there is a mistaken identity. Ms. Sandy my son Tariq Johnson is not involved with any gang and trust me the day he do something wrong police would not need to come and get him.I personally will take him to them after I finish dealing him.”
A young man with a similar name was arrested in the Captain Bakery robbery. However, their names are NOT exact and this young man is 20-years-old whereas the one being held for attempted robbery is 17-years hold.
Innocent Victim: Tariq Chris Johnson DOB July 08 1998 (age 20)
Alleged Criminal: Tyrec Christopher Johnson age 17
