A Springfield man has been accused of firing two shots during an attempted robbery last week.
Brock See, 19, was charged in connection with a July 17 shooting where police alleged he used a handgun to try to rob a man. See was charged with aggravated burglary and aggravated robbery in Clark County Municipal Court.
Police said they they were called to a home on Rutland Avenue on July 17. When officers arrived they were told See “pointed a silver .380 at (a man’s) face and demanded that he empty his pockets,” according to a police report.
“(The victim) then grabbed Mr. See’s throat and hand, pointing the firearm toward the ceiling,” a police report says.
The affidavit says the man walked See by the throat up the stairs and out the door and told him to leave. However, the affidavit said See returned and demanded money again.
“See then fired two rounds inside the residence toward (the man),” the affidavit says. “One round struck the floor directly in front of (the man) and the second round struck the couch in the living room that was directly to the left of him.”
Officers said they found a shell and bullet holes and were told the suspect took off running from the home. He was arrested Saturday and pleaded not guilty in court Monday. His bond was set at $30,000.
