Three men accused of being involved in an armed robbery in late July are now in custody.

Darryl Dewane Wilder, 31, Darrell Timothy Wilder, 31 and Brendon Steele, 20, have each been charged with two counts of robbery with a firearm/dangerous weapon and assault with deadly weapon inflicting serious injury.

Both Darrell Wilder and Darryl Wilder received $250,000 secured bonds; Steele received a $350,000 secured bond.

 The three men were wanted by the Statesville Police Department. Darryl Wilder was taken into custody Aug. 29, and Darrell Wilder was arrested three days earlier. Steel was arrested Aug. 9. 

Police responded to Iredell Memorial Hospital and Davis Regional Medical Center to meet with victims of a reported assault, authorities previously stated in a news release. They said the incident occurred early in the morning of July 29.

Police said both victims told them they were at an apartment in the 500 block of Valley Street visiting friends when approximately six unknown men entered the front door of the apartment. The victims said the men then assaulted and robbed them, police said.

Warrants were obtained for Darrell Wilder, Darryl Wilder and Steele’s arrest after interviewing witnesses, police said at the time.

The Statesville Police Department didn’t immediately respond when asked if anyone else had been named a suspect or arrested in connection to the incident.

Darrell Wilder is scheduled to appear in district court Sept. 16, and Darryl Wilder is scheduled for Sept. 18. Steele will be in court for the charges Sept. 10.
