Man commits robbery to pay friend's bail

Police arrested a Prescott Valley man after he allegedly robbed two men to pay a friend's bail. Police officers responded to an apartment in the 8800 block of Len Court on Sunday morning where witnesses said Brandon Marshall Abraham physically assaulted two men and threatened them for money and goods.

Abraham, 31, was upset that his friend was arrested earlier at the same apartment and wanted money and items to pawn to pay his friend's bail, according to Sgt. Brandon Bonney with the Prescott Valley Police Department.

Bonney said the victims were in fear and gave Abraham more than $600 in money and property. Officers caught Abraham loading the goods and arrested him. Abraham denied forcing the victims to give him the money and property. He also refused to speak with investigators when confronted with conflicting stories about the events.

Abraham was booked into the Yavapai County Jail for one count of robbery, two counts of assault, three counts of disorderly conduct and one count of threatening and intimidating. Police discovered that Abraham is on parole.
