Two men were arraigned Monday after they allegedly robbed two people earlier this month and shot one of their victims before fleeing, according to the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office.

Inkster residents Linton Richey, 33, and Pierre Wilson, 28, were charged with armed robbery, assault with intent to commit murder, assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder, six counts felony firearm, and carrying a firearm with unlawful intent. They face up to life in prison on the robbery and attempted murder charges.

Wilson also was charged with fleeing and eluding a police officer, officials said.

Richey and Wilson allegedly robbed a 25-year-old woman and a 23-year-old man around 3:30 a.m. Saturday on the 20000 block of Yonka in Detroit. During the encounter, the male victim was shot.

When police arrived, both victims were at the scene and the woman informed investigators that the pair had been robbed, officials said.

Richey received a bond of $350,000 cash/surety at his arraignment in 36th District Court. Wilson was given a $250,000 cash/surety bond.

Both are due back in court for hearings on Nov. 29 and Dec.16, according to the prosecutor's office.
