Two different people were robbed at the point of a knife on Saturday following the Cotton Carnival festivities in Sikeston; now a man’s been taken into custody for the crimes.
19-year-old Murphysboro resident Deonntea Calveion Robinson is charged with first degree robbery, unlawful use of a weapon, and armed criminal action.
He’s also accused of second degree assault and resisting arrest.
Reportedly, Robinson is believed to have approached a man getting into his car around 8:20 to leave the parking lot.
The suspect then put his knife his throat and took $40 from him.
About an hour later, he’s accused of approaching a woman entering her car, grabbing her by the arm, and after pointing the knife at her chest, taking her purse.
Bond was set at $75,000 cash.
