WINCHESTER — A local man who allegedly robbed another man with a knife Sunday was granted bond Wednesday.
Kevin Lamont Sanders Jr., 19, of Winchester, appeared in Winchester General District Court via video and was granted a $15,000 secured bond.
Sanders, who is charged with robbery, remained in the Northwestern Regional Adult Detention Center late Wednesday, according to a jail official.
Already on bond and awaiting a jury trial in February for charges related to a New Year’s Day mob attack last year in the city, Sanders allegedly robbed a Winchester man at about 2 a.m. Sunday in the area of Loudoun and Cork streets.
According to a criminal complaint filed in the case, a Winchester Police Department officer saw Sanders near the first block of South Loudoun Street tossing a hat into the air.
Another man in the area of Loudoun and Cork streets reported that Sanders took the hat off of his head just before threatening him with a knife.
Court documents state that the victim identified Sanders as the person who robbed him and took the hat.
Police recovered a pocketknife and an article of clothing valued at $50 from Sanders, according to a previous media release.
