Bond set in alleged robbery

A $10,000 bond was set Friday for a man who was allegedly involved in the robbery of an individual Thursday morning.

Circuit Judge Rob Wyatt Jr. set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Michael Perry, 20, with aggravated robbery.

Chief Deputy Prosecutor Wayne Juneau said Perry was one of several individuals involved in the alleged robbery of a man who was walking from a convenience store on West 28th Avenue at 4 a.m.

According to a probable cause affidavit from Detective Steve Rucker, the alleged victim said he was walking with his wife when a car stopped and four men got out of the car and robbed him.

Later the car was seen on East Harding Avenue and police chased it to East 14th Avenue and Missouri Street, where it stopped and the occupants got out and ran.

Juneau said the owner of the car contacted police and tried to report it stolen, then later said Perry had been driving the vehicle.

Rucker said when Perry was questioned, he said he was in the car at the time of the robbery and said he fled from police, but said he stayed in the car and did not participate in the robbery.

Juneau said Perry is currently out on bond on a theft of property charge and he anticipated that prosecutors would be filing a motion to revoke that bond.

In addition to setting the bond on the new allegation, Wyatt ordered Perry to have no contact with the alleged victim until the case is settled.
