A 20-year-old Atchison man lands a jail stay with a $100,000 bond amount following his arrest Tuesday for an Atchison County District Court warrant charging him crimes involving physical violence.

Landen A. Williams faces aggravated robbery, aggravated battery and theft arising from a July 7 incident in the 700 block of Washington Street.

Atchison Police Chief Mike Wilson said Williams was arrested as a result of a police investigation and was taken into custody Aug. 3 in the 700 block of Kansas Avenue as a result of the warrant.

The case arose from an incident that occurred about 3:30 p.m. July 7 outside a residence in the 700 block of Washington Street where a 51-year-old male victim reported to police he was confronted by individuals who were known to him, Wilson said. The man told police the individuals demanded money from him, repeatedly punched him in the face and subsequently took his wallet from him. The suspects fled the scene and the victim was taken to the hospital by a private vehicle for treatment of his injuries.
