Iowa City police arrested a man Wednesday, alleging that he was connected to a nightclub robbery that occurred early that morning.

Robbie Darrell Taylor, 23, Coralville, was charged with first-degree robbery and assault with intent to cause serious injury.

According to police, Taylor, along with another man, assaulted an employee at the Yacht Club, 13 S. Linn St., and took the cash register on the way out of the bar.

One of the men allegedly threw the employee down a long flight of stairs, and the other man grabbed a box with money inside. The two men then ran out of the bar, got into a car and fled, according to reports.

Police contend that the other man involved in the robbery is Anthony James Williams Jr., 19, Coralville. Police said Williams’ family is cooperating with police, and they expect Williams to turn himself in.

First-degree robbery is a Class B felony, generally punishable by up to 25 years in prison. Assault with intent to cause serious injury, generally punishable by up to two years in prison.
