Police said a man and a juvenile were arrested after they allegedly attacked a man and stole his cell phone and cigarettes.
Shannon D. Cade and a juvenile were arrested after the incident that occurred about 3 a.m. Tuesday on the West Side, according to a criminal complaint filed in Kanawha County Magistrate Court.
The victim reported he was walking in the area of Central and Glenwood Avenues when he was approached by two males who asked him for directions to Elm Street. When he was giving them directions, the victim said, one of the suspects struck him on the left side of his head and then the two wrestled him to the ground, the complaint said. While he was on the ground, the two males struck him several times and took his cell phone and cigarettes from his pocket, the complaint said. The victim got up and the suspects tried to go through his pockets again. He started to fight back, and they took off running east on Central Avenue. The victim flagged down a passerby and called 911.
Police said they checked the area for possible suspects and in the area of Central Avenue and Elm Street noticed a group of people. Cade and the juvenile were identified by the victim as the men who attacked and robbed him, the complaint said. They were arrested and taken to the station for processing.
Cade was charged with first-degree robbery. The juvenile's specific charges were unavailable.
