The alleged attack happened in the early morning hours of October 14, just behind Jekyll and Hyde Bar. Anthony Oliver is charged with counts of armed robbery, aggravated battery and obstructing a police officer.

According to a criminal complaint, the bartender was leaving the bar after work as usual, when Oliver hit her with a blunt object and took her purse.
