Prison term imposed on young man for pair of violent crimes

A man who threatened to kill a woman while free on bond in connection to a robbery was sentenced to prison Monday.

Noah D. Guillaume, 20, pleaded guilty in Richmond County Superior Court to robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime. Chief Judge Carl C. Brown Jr. sentenced Guillaume to 12 years in prison followed by 33 years on probation. If Guillaume shows an ability to live as a law-abiding citizen, Brown said he would consider reducing the probation.

Guillaume robbed a man in the parking lot of the Deans Bridge Road Walmart on Oct. 6, 2016, stealing the victim’s handgun. Evidence against him included witnesses and the store’s video recording, and a security worker at the store who identified Guillaume as a former employee.

Guillaume spent about five days in jail before posting bond. On Feb. 2 on Washington Road, Guillaume pulled up to a car and pointed a gun at a woman and threatened to shoot her during a road rage incident. The victim had two small children in the car with her.
