A Hamilton man has been indicted of several felony charges for allegedly shooting another man on May 12.
Broderick Malik Jones Roberts, 20, was indicted Friday for aggravated robbery, felonious assault and having weapons under disability, according to the Butler County Prosecutor’s Office.
Roberts was arraigned Monday in Hamilton Municipal Court on a single charge of felonious assault where his bond was set at $125,000. He was scheduled to be back in municipal court on May 21 for a preliminary hearing, but because of the direct indictment that will not happen.
The case has been assigned to Butler County Common Pleas Judge Jennifer McElfresh, but an arraignment date for Roberts on the new indictment has not yet been set.
Roberts allegedly shot Jaspreet Singh, 32, “while he sat in his vehicle on the Chestnut Avenue side of 502 East Ave., ” according to court documents. The shooting occurred about 10:30 p.m.
Singh, of Monroe, suffered a gunshot wound to the upper torso, according to the Hamilton Police report. He remains hospitalized, prosecutors said.
Roberts was sent to prison in 2016 after pleading guilty to trespass, unlawful restraint and assault, according to Butler County court records.
