Birthday robbery suspect fit for trial
June 14, 2014, 05:00 AM Daily Journal Staff Report

Vincent Carter

A Richmond man arrested on his 26th birthday after employees of the San Mateo store he was allegedly trying to rob with a sawed-off shotgun wrestled him into submission is mentally competent to stand trial.

A pair of court-appointed attorneys agreed Vincent Lee Carter Jr. is able to aid in his own defense against two counts of attempted armed robbery and resisting arrest stemming from the Feb. 26 incident at the La Raza Market at 380 N. Ellsworth Ave. in San Mateo.

On Friday, a judge reinstated criminal charges against Carter and scheduled an Oct. 14 jury trial.

According to prosecutors, just before 10 a.m. on Carter’s birthday, a man later identified as him entered the store with the weapon and told the clerk “hands up, give me all the money, don’t move.” The clerk responded by hitting the alarm and grabbing the shotgun.

As the pair wrestled, another employee joined in and both subdued the would-be robber until police arrived.

Carter claims the store clerks actually attacked him, according to the District Attorney’s Office.

Carter remains in custody in lieu of $350,000 bail.
