Urbana man gets probation in attack on fast-food employee

URBANA — A man who admitted his role in the robbery of a man in an Urbana fast-food restaurant parking lot has been sentenced to two years of probation.

Assistant State's Attorney Scott Larson said Marshaun Kendall, 20, who listed an address in the 1600 block of North Lincoln Avenue, Urbana, had no prior criminal convictions.

He pleaded guilty to the July 22 robbery of a man who worked at Taco Bell, 1003 W. University Ave., U.

Larson said the man reported that he was robbed by three men who got in his car in the parking lot and began rifling through it before patting him down and demanding money. They also issued a threat that he should leave a co-worker — who was the brother of one of the assailants — alone.

The victim tried to drive off but crashed his car into a sign and another car in the parking lot.

He then got out of the car and was attacked by one of the three men who had hit him. He told police he was robbed of $200. He sustained a cut above his eyebrow during the holdup.

Urbana police caught only Kendall.

A charge of resisting arrest against Kendall for running from police was dismissed in return for his robbery plea.
