BRADENTON, Fla. (WWSB) - The charges against a Bradenton man who was accused of robbing a victim selling home alarm systems have been dropped.
Kyle Leonard, 40, was arrested on November 22 and charged with armed robbery. Deputies said he approached a man going to door-to-door to sell home alarm systems on 37th Avenue East and grabbed an iPad from the victim’s hands and ripped off a lanyard with an ID card from around his neck.
The victim claimed when he tried to get his belongings back, Leonard pulled what the victim believed to be a sword from his vehicle and held it in a threatening manner.
On December 11, state prosecutors dropped the charges against Leonard without prejudice.
