DOWNTOWN JACKSON — A man went before a judge Thursday on accusations of robbery and later running from police. Two men told police they were robbed at gunpoint Sunday at Trinity Food Mart on North Highland Avenue by a man known as “Black,” according to an affidavit. The man was later identified at Christopher Clark, the document states. The men told police they were robbed of money, wallets, phones and car keys. Around 4 p.m. Tuesday, an officer saw Clark riding in the passenger seat of a car on North Royal Street. When police stopped the car, Clark fled on foot and ignored officers’ orders to stop, according to the affidavit. Clark ran into traffic on North Parkway before being arrested. Clark is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery and one count of evading arrest. He is being held in lieu of a $100,000 bond.
