Kennewick man accused of robbery

The Tri-City HeraldJuly 3, 2014 

A 54-year-old Kennewick man is accused of approaching two couples, punching one woman in the face and stealing her purse while pointing a revolver at them.

David L. Turner pleaded innocent to first-degree robbery for the June 28 incident. His trial is set Aug. 11.

According to court documents, the group was leaving on a date and walked outside a home when Turner pulled up to the driveway and got out of his vehicle.

Turner initially pointed a dark-colored revolver at the upper torso of one of the men and asked if he had a problem with him, documents said. The man responded, "No."

Turner then allegedly turned his attention to a woman and, after hitting her with his fist, aimed the revolver at her and demanded, "Where's my stuff?"

The woman screamed, started crying and told Turner "that whatever he was after was in her purse," court documents said. Turner grabbed the purse and took off, documents said.

Turner's bail is set at $20,000.
