According to police, the victims were sitting at the trailhead when they were approached by Mayham and several other men who excited a white sedan. Several of the men displayed handguns and robbed the individuals. Mayham reportedly hit one of the victims in the mouth after they responded sarcastically to his questions.

Officials reviewed surveillance footage from a nearby convenience store and saw the victims entering the gas station before returning to the park. The footage also showed the white sedan following them through the parking lot.

Hours after the robbery, one of the stolen phones was tracked to a nearby address. The vehicle parked in the driveway matched the description given to police. Officials also reviewed security camera footage from a homeowner who found one of the stolen ID's in his yard. The footage showed Mayham being dropped off at his residence by the same white sedan seen at the gas station.
