Hearing set in assault, robbery caseOctober 9, 2019 | Courts
NEWKIRK — A preliminary hearing is set for Christopher Lee Davis, 33, Ponca City, in Kay County District Court on Oct. 25.
Davis is facing a felony charge of first degree robbery. In the affidavit, Kay County deputy Jason Bell reports his son called him on July 27 and reported he was assaulted and robbed by a male subject at the intersection of Ash and Ponca.
The suspect reportedly told the victim he had a gun and attempted to put the alleged victim in a head lock. After a struggle, the suspect got away with a bag containing boxing gloves, pocket knife and a vape. Bell reports the suspect’s description matched Davis’ profile and the car Davis was using matches a vehicle that belongs to a female named Sherry Queen.
The deputy showed Davis’ mug shot to his son who identified him as the assailant.
Ponca City police made contact with Queen. She reportedly told police that she was with Davis when he got into the fight with the alleged victim.
Davis was later arrested at 327 S. Elm.
During a police interview, Davis reportedly said he thought the alleged victim was a guy who owes him $60 from 2015. “I got out and confronted him about it because times are tough,” said Davis. Davis reportedly admitted to fighting with the alleged victim and offered an apology.
“Tell that kid I’m sorry. He didn’t deserve to get beat up like that. I really didn’t know it wasn’t the same guy I thought it was.”
The incident occurred four days after a burglary charge filed against Davis on Jan. 4 was dismissed because a witness could not be located. Davis is being held on $25,000 bond.
