Second person arrested in robbery outside bar

RICHMOND — A second person had been charged in connection with a robbery that happened in early May outside an East Irvine Street bar.

Victoria J. Mullins, 27, of Liberty, was arrested May 27. She allegedly was the accomplice to the crime with Ivan E. Gordon, 35, of Sizemore Drive. They both were charged with first-degree robbery.

Mullins and Gordon both remained lodged Wednesday afternoon in the Madison County Detention Center, with Mullins under a $20,000 cash bond and Gordon with a $5,000 bond. Wednesday in Madison District Court, Mullins waived her right to a preliminary hearing, and the case was referred to a grand jury.

At 11:06 p.m. May 10, an officer met with a man who said he had been assaulted and robbed outside the Blue Moon bar, 525 E. Irvine St., a short time earlier.

The victim reported that a man at the bar, later identified as Gordon, became angry when the victim refused to buy him a beer. When the victim left the bar, Gordon followed him outside and struck the man in the left side of the face from behind, according to an RPD report.

The victim reported that he was knocked to the ground, and a woman, allegedly Mullins, began going through his pockets, attempting to remove his car keys and wallet.

The man managed to keep both the keys and the wallet, but not before the woman made off with $27.

The victim then fled the scene in his vehicle and met with police. Officers reported he had a cut and bleeding lip, his left eye was swollen and black with broken blood vessels, and his right shoulder was bruised.

The victim later went to Baptist Health-Richmond, where he was treated for his injuries and released.

Juvenile charged with assaulting police officer

Police charged a 17-year-old male juvenile with several offenses following a disturbance Monday at Baptist Health-Richmond hospital.

Officers were dispatched to the emergency room at 8 p.m. in response to a report of a disorderly teen on the premises.  

Upon arrival, officers reported encountering the male juvenile who was screaming, cursing and creating a disturbance. When an officer attempted to detain him, the juvenile kicked the officer three times in the chest and spat at him, according to the RPD report  

Another officer assisted and the two were able to bring the juvenile under control although he continued to threaten the officers with bodily harm, the report stated.  

The juvenile was determined to be under the influence of alcohol and drugs, the officers reported.

He was charged with felony third-degree assault on a police officer as well as misdemeanor public intoxication, second-degree disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and third-degree terroristic threatening.
