Wayne Howard
Staff Writer

Gastonia Police say that four of their original list of six suspects in what some have called a "riot" at the QuikTrip convenience store on West Franklin Blvd. February 2nd have now been arrested.

Police say they are still looking for De’Mallon Lamarea White of Kings Mountain and Derrick Anthony Davis of Grover, both wanted for felony inciting to riot.

The four who have been arrested have all made bond and were released. Rebecca Alisha Dawkins, 21, of Kings Mountain, was charged with felony inciting a riot and misdemeanor larceny. She was released after posting $15,000 bond.

Elijah Ansean Stowe, 20, of Gastonia, was charged with felony assault with a deadly weapon inflicting serious injury, felony inciting to riot, injury to personal property and simple affray. He was released on a $20,000 bond.

Allen Trayvond Curry, 25, of 620 Shady Ave., Gastonia, was charged with felony inciting to riot. He was released after posting a $10,000 bond.

LaQuisha Breaun Burris, 32, of Gastonia, was charged with misdemeanor larceny. She was released on a $1,000 unsecured bond.

The incident happened shortly after 2:30 on that Sunday morning at the convenience store which stays open 24 hours daily.

The female store clerk was assaulted, multiple individuals then ransacked the store, opening & consuming food & beverage items. A video of the incident was posted on Facebook and one of the females is seen with her arms full of merchandise.

It took police about six minutes after being called to respond to the melee. When they did, the crowd of a dozen or more scattered and fled.

The video ended with a scuffle and what sounded like gunfire but nobody was shot.

Police say that while they've been able to identify the six suspects, they believe that others who participated should also be charged, but so far no others have been identified.
