Pair Plead Guilty In Railroad Employee Robbery

Posted: Updated:
CHATHAM COUNTY, GA -

The Office of Eastern Judicial Circuit/Chatham County District Attorney
announces that Wendell Louis Buxton Jr. (23) and Anthony Leonard Stephens (21) have pleaded guilty to their involvement in the armed robbery of a Norfolk Southern Employee in 2010.
Buxton pled on February 23 and Stephens on March 7 of this year. Each man received the
sentence of ten years in prison without the possibility of parole.


On May 31, 2010 a Norfolk Southern employee was conducting a Flag Test on the railway lines
near Louisville Road. He was approached by two men wearing bandanas. The pair demanded
his money and forced him into the woods beside the tracks at gunpoint. There they forced him
to lie on the ground and robbed him of his wallet, his watch and railroad issued radio. As they
fled the scene, the duo instructed the victim to remain on the ground for thirty minutes or he
would be shot and killed. The victim's credit cards were later used at various locations around
Savannah. Using video obtained from these locations, police were able to identify and question
the card user; Marlon Prince Robinson. Robinson identified the perpetrators of the crime as
Buxton and Stephens.


The State was represented by Assistant District Attorney Christy Barker and the Detective was
Special Agent Herbster of the Norfolk Southern Railroad Police Department.
