After three weeks of searching, Columbus Police cracked the case of a man called Peanut, wanted for a mid-August Hood Street robbery.
Derrick Nutt, 25, faced charges of aggravated assault and robbery during a Tuesday morning Recorders Court hearing.
Det. John Bailey told the court that a victim approached police Aug. 18, to report a robbery. The man told police he was returning to his house on Hood Street when two acquaintances approached him. When the men began threatening him, he warned them not to come any closer. However, Nutt allegedly punched the victim and kicked him several times on the ground before grabbing $20 out of his pocket. The two then ran off.
The victim told police he knew Nutts alias, but not his identity. It wasnt until about a week later when police were able to match the victims descriptions with an existing criminal profile. The victim almost immediately identified Nutt as the man who allegedly robbed him when presented with a photo lineup.
Nutt was subsequently arrested Sept. 9.
Judge Michael Cielinski set Nutts bond at $25,000. His case will be forwarded to Muscogee County Superior Court.
