Alleged chain snatcher can’t afford bail

Francis Petillo

Twenty six year old Francis Petillo appeared in court this morning and was arraigned on two criminal offenses after a woman claimed that Petillo tried to snatch her chain off her neck. Petillo who appeared unrepresented pleaded not guilty to the charges of robbery and damage to property. Twenty year old Robin Erazo told police that on Monday she was on Miller Street when Petillo tried to rob her of her gold chain valued at one thousand two hundred dollars. Erazo told the courts that she refused to be robbed but despite fighting off her attacker, he managed to run away with half of her chain. Bail was offered to him in the sum of five thousand plus two sureties of two thousand five hundred dollars. He was unable to meet bail up to noon. He is due back in court on June twenty six.
