February 15, 2008|By HEATHER KEELS

A judge found probable cause Thursday to proceed with charges against a man accused of robbing an acquaintance in an alley Dec. 22, Washington County District Court records show.

Ellis Reginald Fennell, 19, of 919 Rosehill Ave. in Hagerstown, was charged Jan. 3 with second-degree assault, theft of less than $100, armed robbery, conspiracy to commit armed robbery, and using a handgun in the commission of a violent crime, court records show.

Police say Fennell asked acquaintances Kenneth Platt and Toni Boward for a ride, then directed Platt to turn into an alley, where another man in the car displayed a handgun and he and Fennell demanded money, Hagers-town Police Detective Tammy Jurado wrote in charging documents.

After Fennell punched Platt in the face and the other man made a threat, Platt handed over $70, Jurado wrote.

Fennell was being held on $75,000 bond.
