Trial date set in liquor store robbery case


A man who Mandan police say stole a bottle of tequila from a liquor store and then punched a female clerk pleaded not guilty on Monday and is scheduled for a January trial on charges of robbery and disorderly conduct.

Anthony Whiteman, 32, was arrested in October when police responded to a call that he had taken the liquor without paying for it, according to a police affidavit. The store clerk followed Whiteman outside and was able to take the bottle from him. Whiteman allegedly struck her with a closed fist and fled. He was arrested a short time later and denied hitting the clerk, the affidavit said.

The clerk suffered a swollen left cheekbone but did not seek medical attention, according to authorities.

Whiteman waived his right to a preliminary hearing before entering the pleas at his arraignment, Assistant Morton County State’s Attorney Austin Gunderson said. South Central District Judge Gail Hagerty set a trial date of Jan. 30.

Whiteman is being held in the Burleigh Morton Detention Center in lieu of $5,000 cash bail, according to the center’s website.
