Teen who accused police department of mistreatment now facing attempted murder charge stemming from armed robbery

Jose Demaris Charles

A North Carolina teen who recently made headlines over alleged police brutality in 2016 is now facing an attempted first-degree murder charge.

17-year-old Jose Demaris Charles was the subject of 2016 police brutality accusations in Greensboro, after his mother claimed GPD had mistreated her son during his arrest at the time.

However, the young man seems to be quite the up-and-comer in terms of a criminal career, having allegedly shot 36-year-old Donald Robert Stanfield on Christmas Eve.

Officers in Gibsonville were called to the shooting just before 6PM that Sunday, arriving to find Stanfield suffering from an abdominal wound after he was robbed.

Surveillance footage showed a white Toyota Camry as the getaway car, reportedly believed to be in use by Charles and four other males at the time of the robbery.

Charles remained at-large until he was arrested on January 4 and placed in the Alamance County Detention Center under a $250,000 secured bond.

Elizabeth Jade Busick, a 16-year-old girl from Gibsonville, was also taken into custody for related charges of conspiracy to sell marijuana and felony common law obstruction of justice.

According to FOX 8, the young woman is being held at the same detention center under a $100,000 bond.

During the 2016 incident that made him famous, Charles was charged with assaulting a police officer on July 4 of 2016.
