CHARLES CITY – A Charles City man has been found guilt of first-degree robbery by a jury and awaits sentencing.
A warrant for the arrest of 36-year-old Donald Edward McIntyre was issued by a judge on December 20, 2016. This arrest warrant is in connection to an alleged robbery McIntyre committed back on December 27, 2015. At 6:45 AM that day, Charles City police responded to the 1200 block of E Street for a person who was assaulted. The incident was determined to be an armed robbery. The victim sought medical attention. The suspect had left before officers arrived, police said, and the case remained under investigation. The suspect was described as a white male about 6 feet in height or slightly taller with a slender build.
On December 24, 2016, at about 1:41 AM, Mcintyre was picked up by Charles City police in the 1000 block of E Street on the warrant. He entered a not-guilty plea and finally went to trial last week. After a short deliberation, the jury returned a guilty verdict. McIntyre now awaits sentencing on February 9. His attorney has filed a motion for a new trial and an arrest of judgement.
