SOUTH PORTLAND — A Gray man faces multiple charges and an initial court appearance Friday after his arrest Wednesday for his alleged role in a robbery near the Maine Mall last winter.
Ryan Bell, 25, was charged with Class A robbery, Class B aggravated assault and Class C theft in the Feb. 20 robbery at the On the Border restaurant, South Portland Police Department Sgt. Steven Webster said.
Bell was taken to Cumberland County Jail in Portland and initially held on $100,000 bail. He was expected to appear in Cumberland County Unified Criminal Docket in Portland Friday, Webster said.
Webster said Bell was one of two men who allegedly entered the restaurant shortly after it closed, assaulted one employee, threatened another, and left with a small amount of cash. One victim was injured, but was not taken to the hospital.
