ArrestWarrantHENDERSON, Ky. (6/11/18) — Henderson Police Department reported a man wanted on first-degree robbery charges related to a May 26 HPD investigation was arrested in Evansville Sunday.

Christopher M. Duncan of Madisonville was reported to be one of the men involved. HPD reported a lady was attacked and robbed by a group of young men, while walking down an alley behind Pope Street. The robbery was caught on video surveillance and was shared with HPD and put on social media.

HPD Spokeswoman Jennifer Richmond stated, "In the video, a group of young men walk up behind the victim, she is knocked down and punched repeatedly, and her purse was stolen. A citizen who witnessed the assault followed the suspects and took a photo of them which was shared."

A 15-year-old was taken into custody May 30 and charged with first-degree robbery, HPD reported earlier. He was taken to the McCracken County Regional Juvenile Detention Facility.

Duncan is currently being held in the Vanderburgh County Jail, where he awaits extradition to Henderson.
