Brayden Kirby

A 17-year old from Canton has been formally charged with a September armed robbery at a Riverstone Parkway gas station, court documents show.

According to an indictment filed Monday, Brayden Kirby is charged with pointing a pistol at two women Sept. 14 and taking items from them, including cell phones, a wallet, a backpack, and car keys. Additionally, he is charged with pointing a gun at a man and taking his wallet, and getting into one of the women’s vehicles and starting the car. During the robbery, the indictment alleges Kirby illegally wore a mask, a “tool and device commonly used in the commission of armed robbery.”

Kirby is charged with three counts of armed robbery, two counts of aggravated assault, entering an automobile to commit a theft, hijacking an automobile, two counts of possession of a firearm during commission of a felony, possession of tools for the commission of a crime, possession of a handgun by someone under 18, and marijuana possession.

According to his arrest warrant, the armed robbery was between 2 and 2:05 a.m. Sept. 14 at the Racetrac on Riverstone Parkway in Canton.

Kirby was arrested later that day and booked into the Cherokee County jail at 3:30 p.m. Sept. 14, a booking report shows. Tuesday, Kirby remained in custody without bond.
