A Sun­day evening gath­er­ing of friends at an apart­ment off Great Mills Road ended with the ar­rest of a re­turn­ing vis­i­tor who court pa­pers al­lege as­saulted the res­i­dent, tak­ing his wal­let and leav­ing him with a mi­nor in­jury to his face.

A judge set a bond re­quire­ment Mon­day of 10 per­cent of $10,000 for the re­lease of 22-year-old Fran­cis Xavier Hill, a Lexington Park res­i­dent who a pros­e­cu­tor said in court had pre­vi­ously failed to com­ply with pre­trial su­per­vi­sion, in­clud­ing an elec­tronic monitoring re­quire­ment.

“He cut a bracelet off,” St. Mary’s As­sis­tant State’s At­tor­ney Michael Kane said at a hear­ing in Leonard­town, where vis­it­ing Calvert County Dis­trict Judge Robert Rid­dle noted that Hill re­peat­edly had not shown up for court in the past.

On Sun­day, court pa­pers state, Carl Rober­son told po­lice that he “was sit­ting on his couch with the front door open, en­ter­tain­ing com­pany,” when Hill, who had been there ear­lier, en­tered the apart­ment and told Rober­son to turn off the lights, which he did not do.

“Hill then got on top of him, while he sat on the couch, reached into his left back pocket [and] pulled out his wal­let con­tain­ing $60 in cash,” ac­cord­ing to a state­ment of prob­a­ble cause filed by St. Mary’s sher­iff’s Cpl. Daniel Sny­der. “Rober­son re­ceived a mi­nor in­jury to the left side of his face by his eye … [when] maybe they bumped heads.”

Hill was charged with rob­bery and sec­ond-de­gree as­sault.

Woman ac­cused of point­ing gun at son

A Cal­i­for­nia woman was re­leased from cus­tody Satur­day on an un­se­cured $10,000 bond fol­low­ing her ar­rest on charg­ing pa­pers al­leg­ing she pointed a gun at her son the day be­fore dur­ing an ar­gu­ment about her send­ing money to a stranger.

Teresa Lynn Thomp­son, 63, was charged with com­mit­ting a first-de­gree as­sault at her San Souci neigh­bor­hood home on Phillip Meagher, who told po­lice that when he walked Fri­day from his bed­room into the liv­ing room “to voice his opin­ion again … Thomp­son was ly­ing on the couch with a gun in her hand, point­ing it at him and telling him to be quiet and ‘go to your room,’” ac­cord­ing to a state­ment of prob­a­ble cause filed by sher­iff’s Cpl. Daniel Sny­der.

Thomp­son, com­ply­ing with 911 dis­patch­ers’ re­quest that she step out of the res­i­dence, told law of­fi­cers ar­riv­ing at the scene that she never pointed a gun at her son, court pa­pers state, and that there was a gun in the house on top of a hutch, where po­lice re­cov­ered the weapon.
