FAIRMONT — A 20-year-old Fairmont man was arrested and charged on Wednesday night with robbing a man at gunpoint earlier that day, according to Fairmont police Maj. David Windom.
Shilec Rothwell, of the 3000 block of Dallas Road, was charged with felony robbery with a dangerous weapon for robbing 39-year-old Terrance Moore, according to Windom.
Windom said that Moore, a resident of Coward Street, was walking along Canal Street at about 5:18 p.m. when Rockwell approached him, pointed a handgun at Moore, demanded money and stole about $600.
Rockwell then ran, but was apprehended by Fairmont police a few blocks away, Windom said.
Rockwell was taken to the Robeson County jail and held on $15,000 bond.
