A North Carolina woman wanted for robbing a man at gunpoint in October and shooting another man in January was arrested in Currituck County on Friday, city police said.
22-year-old Heaven Tyshae Griffin was apprehended on outstanding warrants about 8 a.m. by a city task force officer assigned with the U.S. Marshal’s Service, according to a press release. Police didn’t say where in Currituck Griffin was arrested.
According to arrest warrants, Griffin is charged with five felonies: attempted first-degree murder, robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping, larceny of a motor vehicle and felony larceny.
She was being held at Albemarle District Jail without bond for the attempted first degree murder charge, police said. A magistrate set a separate $100,000 secured bond for the other charges against her. A jail official also said she’s being held for a parole violation.
According to her arrest warrant for attempted first-degree murder, Griffin “unlawfully, willfully and feloniously” attempted to “kill and murder” a man Jan. 21. The police press release doesn’t detail what happened, stating only that the victim “sustained gunshot wound injuries” during an incident at 1122 Herrington Road on that date.
Griffin’s arrest warrant for the other charges alleges she used a handgun on Oct. 23, 2022, to hold a second man at gunpoint, ordered him to drive her without his consent to a “certain location,” and then stole both the man’s 2010 Nissan Maxima vehicle and $48 in cash. The police press release states the incident was reported in the area of 401 West Ehringhaus Street.
The warrant for Griffin’s arrest on the attempted murder charge was issued Feb. 3, court documents show. The warrant on the other charges was issued Jan. 25. Griffin’s next court date is March 23, a court official said Friday.
