BISMARCK, N.D. - Charges have been filed for six people involved in a Mandan robbery in June.
The affidavit says 19-year-old Kenwan Thompson III, 18-year-old Ellis Tikanye, 18-year-old Sage Berg, 19-year-old Kalynn Wallette, 22-year-old Marquayvious Putman, and 19-year-old Jacob Beyers are charged with conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
Mandan Police say they received a call about a possible burglary in progress. One of the victims told police there was a man pointing a gun and ordering them to get on the ground. The victim told police one of the men punched him in the face and it knocked him to the ground.
The other victim in the home told police he received a message from Wallette on a social media app asking to purchase marijuana from him and agreed to meet at a gas station in Mandan. Police say the two met at the gas station and Wallette got in the his car. The victim tells police she was stalling and said “you’re going to die tonight,” and she then reached for the keys in the ignition. The victim says he started driving and pushed the woman out of the car and eventually went back home.
The affidavit says when the victim got home he heard a loud noise and four to five people were in his living room. One of the suspects is accused of asking where the money was and went into the victims room and took marijuana that was laying on the bed and $40 from on top of the mantel.
Berg told police she drove to the gas station with Beyers and Putman but dropped them off a block away. She says she parked at the gas station and there were only two other cars there when one of the victims cars arrived and Wallete got out of her car and into his. Berg says Putman, Tikanye, Beyers were hiding nearby and Thompson III was in a car nearby.
Berg says after the victim pushed Wallette out of the car they tried to follow him. Berg says in the car with her were two juveniles, Putman, and Tikanye, and Wallette. She says the people in the car were talking about robbing the victim.
Warrants are out for all six suspects. Sage and Wallette have their initial appearance’s schedule for Friday afternoon. Court documents don’t have the other suspect’s hearing scheduled yet.
