A Calvert County man has been arrested in connection with an assault and robbery Sunday evening at a pizza restaurant at the Whiskey Bottom Shopping Center in Laurel.

Nester Enrique Simmonds, 19, of the 1100 block of Cimmeron Road in Lusby was charged Sunday with assault, battery, robbery, attempted robbery and theft of less than $300. He was being held Monday on $5,000 bail at the Howard County Detention Center.

According to court documents:

About 7: 40 p.m. Sunday, a man approached Arnold Burton Miller, an employee of Pizza Italiano's, 9105Q All Saints Road, and demanded $30 for handing out fliers for the restaurant.

Miller, who was running the store at the time, told the man that he had not worked long enough to earn the money.

The man then demanded all the money Miller had, at which point Miller backed out of the store.

The man followed Miller, beat him, took $15 Miller had in his pocket and tried to force Miller back into the store. The man fled when witnesses began yelling.
