A $50,000 bond was set Monday for a Pine Bluff man who allegedly robbed another man at gunpoint early Saturday morning.

Jefferson County District Judge John Kearney set the bond after ruling prosecutors had probable cause to charge Darius Burnett, 18, with aggravated robbery.

Deputy Prosecutor Maxie Kizer said police were sent at 1:14 a.m. to the McDonald’s at 2819 S. Olive St. to talk to the alleged victim, an employee at the restaurant.

Detective Charles Harrison reported that the victim said he had gotten off work and was walking home and when he reached the area of 26th Avenue and Laurel Street and saw Burnett, who he knew, talking to four or five other males.

Kizer said the victim reported he continued walking and Burnett ran up behind him, pulled out a pistol wrapped in a white rag and took the victim’s bag and cell phone.

Harrison reported that the victim went back to McDonald’s and called police, then went with officers to show them where he had seen Burnett standing and talking to the other males.

The victim also gave police a description of the clothing Burnett was wearing and Kizer said the owner of the house signed a consent to search form for the residence.

Harrison reported that officers located Burnett hiding in a closet and he was reportedly wearing the same clothing and shoes that the victim had described.

A search of the house for the victim’s cell phone and bag was unsuccessful, and police also reported they were unable to find the gun Burnett allegedly used.

In addition to setting the bond, Kearney ordered Burnett to have no contact with the alleged victim, told him to come back to court Oct. 29 and appointed the Public Defender’s Office to represent him.
