A suspect accused in a string of bizarre crimes will be in court Thursday.
Dwight Davis, 53, is accused of committing more than a dozen robberies in Colorado Springs in the spring of 2012. Most were committed at local stores, but authorities say he also held up three individuals in separate personal robberies--including robbing his own cousin at gunpoint.
Davis' alleged crime spree was marked by the eclectic selection of weapons police say he used to terrorize victims in the robberies. Law enforcement says the suspect used rocks, bricks and even poured
liquid believed to be flammable on clerks at two locations and threatened to light them on fire.
Davis is the primary suspect in the following cases:
• 04/17/12: Arby’s, 393 S. 8th Street at 9:45PM
