Armed robbery suspects arrested in Bibb motel room

The Bibb County Sheriff's Office says they arrested two robbery suspects in the very spot where the crime took place.

According to a news release, the victim was walking to a room at the American Best Inn on Harrison road Wednesday morning around 4:20.

As he was passing a room, deputies say 22-year-old Chartisti Rouse opened the door, and pointed a gun and told the victim to come in. The man went in, and that's where the second suspect, 20-year-old Alexis Za'Kia Balkcom, was waiting. The couple demanded and took money from the victim, then told him to leave.

The victim then called the Bibb Sheriff's Office and a look-out was announced for both suspects. Deputies went to the American Best Inn and found both Rouse & Balkcom in the same room where they allegedly robbed the victim.

Both are being held in the Bibb County jail, and according to the jail website, Balkcom is charged with armed robbery, and Rouse is facing numerous counts including aggravated assault, participation in a criminal street gang, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, terroristic threats and acts, and several other charges.
