PARKERSBURG, W.Va. (WTAP) - Patrick Lee Munday of Parkersburg has been processed by the Parkersburg Police Department with one count of armed robbery. Police accuse Munday of robbing the Michael’s.

He also was found to be connected to a previous attempted robbery at the Dollar General on Pike St. on January 23, according to police. Since that discovery he has been charged with second degree robbery and his bond has been set at $300,000.

Bond has not yet been set for Munday’s Michael’s incident due to him having to appear before a Wood County Circuit Court Judge.

We will provide more information as we learn more.

According to officials, the suspect was scheduled to be arraigned by Magistrate Robin Waters Sunday night between 9:30-10 p.m.

One person is facing possible charges after a robbery at a Parkersburg business Sunday afternoon.

Not much information is being released now, but Parkersburg Police Chief Matt Board says his department got a call about the incident at 5:09 p.m.

He says police officers had the suspect detained at 5:16 p.m.

Board believes the suspect went into Michael’s and demanded money from an employee. The person had a gun and was able to get an undisclosed amount of money before leaving the store in a vehicle.

Board says Michael’s employees were able to call 911 and give a good description of the vehicle the suspect left in.

That vehicle and suspect were found a short time later on the 3200 block of Grand Central Avenue.

Board says they are not releasing the suspect’s name at this time but do expect to file charges.

Board says officers will question the suspect, and there is no threat to the community related to this crime.
