Police say five men were walking in the first block of Broadway around 1:30 a.m. Monday when Pomerlee and two others got out of a red Chevy Blazer and demanded the victims’ money.

Authorities say Pomerlee, who was armed with a gun, and the other suspects then walked up to the victims and took their belongings before fleeing the scene.

An investigation led them to Pomerlee, who is being held on a $500,000 cash-only bond. The other two suspects remain at large.

The robbery was one of three that happened minutes apart in downtown St. Louis early Monday.

Police say a man and his girlfriend were also robbed by suspects in a Chevy Blazer in the 2000 block of Delmar. Earlier in the night, multiple victims were robbed outside of Ballpark Village.

 

Authorities have not said if Pomerlee is a suspect in those incidents.
