RACINE — Nearly two months after a fight involving about 30 people broke out on Villa Street, two men have been charged for allegedly stealing $2,960 in cash during the fight, according to the Racine Police Department.
Police said that Facebook video taken during the fight was used to identify the two suspects: Kirk Duncan Jr., 28, of the 1100 block of College Avenue; and Falandric A. Williams Sr., 40, of the 1000 block of Wisconsin Avenue.
Both men have been charged with armed robbery with use of force, which is a felony. Duncan faces an additional felony charges for repeat possession of a controlled substance and repeat possession of THC after police reportedly found MDMA and marijuana in his pockets when he was arrested Friday evening.
According to a criminal complaint:
At about 5:15 p.m. on the evening of May 30, a fight involving approximately 30 people broke out in the 1100 block of Villa Street.
During the fight, Williams and Duncan allegedly began “assaulting” a man through a car door and tried to take keys out of the ignition. They reportedly took $2,960 in cash from the man after one of them pulled a gun and pointed it at him.
Somebody took a cell phone video of the incident and uploaded it to Facebook. Upon reviewing the footage, police said they observed the assault, but “at no point” was a handgun seen in the video, according to investigators.
A preliminary hearing for both men is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. on July 24 at the Racine County Law Enforcement Center, 717 Wisconsin Ave. Both Williams and Duncan remained in custody as of Monday afternoon at the County Jail.
