A Davenport man has been sentenced to up to 35 years in prison for three armed robberies he committed earlier this year.
Dayvon Davell Freeman, 24, pleaded guilty in August in Scott County District Court to second-degree kidnapping, two counts of first-degree robbery and second-degree robbery.
During a sentencing hearing Thursday, District Court Judge Henry Latham ordered Freeman to pay $1,539.46 to one of the victims and ordered that restitution for the remaining victims will stay open for 30 days.
In exchange for Freeman's plea, prosecutors dismissed three counts of possession of a firearm by a felon as a habitual offender and trafficking stolen weapons as a habitual offender.
Just before 1 a.m. Jan. 14, Davenport police were dispatched to the Kwik Shop at 1732 Marquette St. in reference to a robbery that occurred in the parking lot of Stoeger's Bar and Grill, 1520 Washington St.
According to police, Freeman was wielding a handgun when he approached two people and ordered them into a vehicle owned by one of the victims. Freeman then ordered them to take him to an automatic teller machine and withdraw money, according to police. The transaction was caught on the ATM's video camera and was verified by the bank receipt.
After getting the victim's money, he ordered them to drive around and eventually got out of the vehicle in the north alley of 800 West 14th Street, according to police.
In addition to taking money from the victims, Freeman also ordered them to give him their cellphones. He also made several threats to kill the victims and their families, according to police.
Police say Freeman also committed armed robberies on Jan. 28 at the Dollar General store at 403 E. Locust St. and Feb. 4 at Electronic Expressions at 1634 W. Locust St.
