Victims come forward about Booth Mobile robbery suspect


The man accused of punching and robbing a pregnant store clerk is now in jail.
His bond set just over one-million dollars.

Vincent Johnson is charged with felony battery, strong-arm robbery and burglary.
He appeared in "video court" yesterday.

The victim of the attack was there to watch
Channel Three's Kavontae Smalls has more on the message she had for Johnson.

Investigators say it was Vincent Johnson who entered the Boost Mobile store as seen in the surveillance video.
They believe he hit employee, Jessica Smith in the face, before stealing money from the register.

Friday, Smith looked at her alleged attacker again, this time in handcuffs and on a monitor for video court.
Smith wanted to speak directly to Johnson, but the judge didn't want her comments to taint the case against him, since Johnson hasn't been convicted.
Instead Smith shared her thoughts with the judge.

"I hope that somehow there is no bond."

Johnson has a track record of similar crimes.
Since he's been in the news, more alleged victims are coming forward.
Sherry Bryson claims she was punched by Johnson while working at the Happy Nick's store in May.

"I'm glad he got caught, I'm sad, I mean I'm glad it happened the way it did but I feel sorry for the girl because she was pregnant."

Now a third victim has come forward.
"Evelyn" who didn't want her face shown on TV claims Johnson also punched her, and briefly knocked her unconscious.
This happened 2-years ago while on the job.

"As I opened the drawer, he hit me, grabbed the money and took off."

Johnson was later charged in that incident, but the court found him not guilty.
This time around, all of his alleged victims share something in common.
They hope he remains locked up so no one else is hurt.

"I think this is his style, and it's not going to change. I do hope however, that Vincent will find something in his heart to make that change," said Jessica Smith.
