EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - A man thought to be a victim in a December robbery, is now facing charges in the case.

Police say 30-year-old Jarvis Handy pointed a gun at an employee of the Metro PCS on Covert Avenue and demanded money from the register.

They say an employee, 31-year-old Christopher Britton, was forced into the back room, along with another employee, and Handy demanded money from the store’s safe.

After getting about $2,500 in cash, officers say Handy ran from the store.

They say he was caught a short time later on Jeanette Avenue.
