Update: Handgun threat, assault lead to charges against two



The victim received minor injuries during the initial assault, a Department of Public Safety news release said.

Both men appeared in court Monday for charges of first-degree robbery and second-degree assault. Evans also is facing a possible charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm, and a disorderly conduct charge is being requested for Wynn.

Evans remains on probation for helping another man rob a restaurant employee who was making a late-night bank drop at the First National Bank on Long Street in February 2010. The other man worked with the manager making the drop, so he and Evans were waiting at the bank when the manager arrived. About $800 was stolen at gunpoint.
