Robbery of Three Juveniles while on Probation Draws 25-Year Prison Sentence; Commonwealth v. Solomon Supreme Street

Wednesday, March 15, 2017

Colin D. Stolle, Commonwealth's Attorney for the city of Virginia Beach, announced that Solomon Supreme Street, 24 years old, formerly of the 100 block of Ford Street in Chesapeake, Virginia, was sentenced by Circuit Court Judge Steven C. Frucci for charges of Malicious Wounding, Robbery, Attempted Robbery (2 counts), Conspiracy, and Use of a Firearm (3 counts). Street was also sentenced for two probation violations.  The total sentence imposed today by Judge Frucci was 43 years with 18 years suspended, leaving 25 years to serve. 

Street pled guilty on June 1, 2016. Had this matter gone to trial, the Commonwealth's evidence would have proven that on September 28, 2014, Solomon Street's co-defendant, Devon Jensen, went to a party in the Windsor Oaks area of Virginia Beach.  Jensen left the party and picked up Street.  At approximately 2:30 a.m., Jensen and Street returned to the party and were spotted hiding in front of a car.  Three juvenile victims from the party went to investigate.  Street pulled out a gun and started ordering around the juveniles.  Jensen pointed a gun at one victim and said, "Who wants to die?"  The defendants demanded the victim's keys, and Jensen began pistol-whipping him when he could not find them.  Jensen then pulled a knife and lightly slit the victim's throat.  Street had a female victim on the ground and would not let her leave. He threw her phone into the grass and placed his gun to her head.  Jensen robbed the third victim of his cell phone. 

A neighbor heard the commotion and called the police.  The police arrived shortly thereafter and captured Street and Jensen leaving in a black Dodge Charger.  Inside the car, police recovered two firearms matching those described by the victims, as well as property belonging to the victims. 

Jensen pled guilty for his role in the crimes on April 26, 2016, and is scheduled to be sentenced on April 18, 2017.

Street has prior convictions for Eluding Police and two (2) counts each of Grand Larceny from the Person, Possession of a Firearm by a Felon, and Conspiracy to Rob. At the time of these offenses, Street was on probation, and these new charges constituted a violation of the terms of his probation.  His 25-year sentence today incorporates the sentence for his probation violations.
