EASTON, Md. - Easton Police has arrested a man in connection to a violent robbery that happened in November.

Police said Monday that officers arrested 23-year-old Sheldon T. Nieves, of Trappe, Md., Friday and charged him with numerous counts of armed robbery, assault, theft and conspiracy. 

Police say the charges stem from an incident that happened on November 23 at the Greens on S. Washington Street in Easton. Police say a man was walking in the area when he was approached by two men, one of them whom was later identified as Nieves. Police say Nieves showed a knife then demanded the victim's wallet. Police say the two men then hit the victim on the face, and when he fell to the ground, they began kicking him. Police say the two then stole the victim's wallet and cell phone and took off.

Nieves was taken before a Talbot County District Court Commissioner where he was ordered to be held at the Talbot County Detention Center on temporary committal.

The investigation is ongoing and police are still attempting to identify the other man involved, who was only described by the victim as a white male. Police are asking anyone that might have information regarding this investigation to contact the Easton Police Department at (410) 822-1111.
