18-year-old charged with armed robbery

December 19, 2018

When the woman invited Demarcus L. Hale to her apartment, she didn’t expect to get robbed.

Nevertheless, about 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Hale, 18, of no fixed address, didn’t waste time on his mission, according to court documents.

Hale grabbed his victim by the back of the neck, hit her in the head and stuck a black handgun with silver trim to her head. He pushed her to the ground, then took $300 from her bed and her iPhone 8.

“This is gang (expletive),” he told his victim. “Give me everything you got.”

When she told him that he’d already taken everything she had, Hale went through her drawers and ran out of her apartment, court records said.

Hale was charged Monday with armed robbery. He was being held at the Allen County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail but was being held on another case without bond. He has a court hearing Thursday.
