Man accused of threats
Dennis Eugene Stover, 42, transient, was arrested Thursday on allegations he attempted to rob two juveniles who were driving a truck in an alley near First Street and Grand Avenue, Grand Junction police said.
Stover could be charged with a felony count of robbery. He is being held in the Mesa County Jail on $2,000 bond.
The juveniles told officers a man was pushing a cart in the alley Thursday morning when he yelled at them as they drove past him. They stopped to see if he needed something, and he approached the passenger window, reached into his cart, pulled out something they believed to be a knife or pipe and began shaking it violently. The man told them he would stab them if they didn’t give him all their money, according to an arrest affidavit.
The juveniles drove away and found an officer in the area. Police found a man, later identified as Dennis Eugene Stover, matching the suspect’s description in the parking lot of Subway, questioned him about the alleged encounter and took him into custody, the affidavit said. His statements to police were redacted from the report.
