Billings, Montana - A thief was arrested after his victim reported that he was robbed at gunpoint right after he won over $3,000 at the Grandstand Casino.
The victim reported to the Billings Police that on April 11 he won a big sum of money at the 905 Grand Ave. Grandstand Casino, which was a little over $3,000. He left the casino premises with his friends, a man and two women, and proceeded to Pioneer Park. When they got there, Witherall appeared, suddenly grabbed him and threatened him with a knife, forcing him to give up his cellphone and most of his casino winnings. Before Witherall fled, he managed to kick his poor victim in the face.
Allen Earl Witherall, age 33, who appeared on Monday, July 11, 2016 in Yellowstone County Justice Court, was charged with one count of felony robbery.
The judge held Witherall in lieu of a $5,000 bond and should he be released, the judge also ordered him to be placed under GPS monitoring.
