Court Date Set For Alleged Robber

A February 21st court date has been set for a Cookeville man, charged with robbing the owner of the Rose Garden restaurant last year.  Police say 23-year-old Joshua Lee Boyer came up to the woman who owns the restaurant as she was leaving after closing on November 28th. He is accused of grabbing a paper bag she was carrying and running away. Police say Boyer apparently thought the bag contained money, but -- in fact -- it contained only some paperwork for the business. He reportedly tossed down the bag and ran from the scene when it found out it didn't have any cash.
