WILLMAR - The second suspect tied to an alleged robbery and assault reported Saturday in Willmar made his first court appearance Thursday.
Christopher Michael Mead, 25, of Willmar, faces charges of first-degree aggravated robbery and simple robbery stemming from the incident. Bail was set at $75,000, cash or bond.
Mead will make his next court appearance Feb. 4 for an omnibus hearing.
The other suspect tied to the case, Jonathan Roy Mead, 24, of Willmar, made his first court appearance Tuesday on charges of first-degree aggravated robbery, simple robbery and fifth-degree assault. He will make his next court appearance Dec. 15.
The criminal complaint alleges that a Willmar officer was dispatched around 4 p.m. Saturday to a Willmar residence on a report of a knife incident.
He met with the victim there, who said he received a call from a friend instructing him to meet at a residence in the 400 block of Ann Street Southeast to lend her $30 cash.
After he arrived at the residence to give his friend the money, a man he did not recognized answered the door. The victim stepped aside and was then allegedly punched repeatedly by the man, who demanded the victim give him all the money in his wallet.
A second man then allegedly held a pocket knife against his back and the two men took the victim’s cell phone and $425.
