The case of a 26-year-old Henderson resident accused of three armed robberies within one week is scheduled to appear in Vance County Superior Court next month.

Daniel Knott, of 938 Bridgers St., was arrested in connection to a robbery Feb. 3 at Boost Mobile, a robbery Feb. 6 at Rent-A-Center and a robbery Feb. 10 at Anna’s Quick Stop on West Andrews Avenue.

Knott is charged with stealing a total of $841.10 from the three stores, according to court documents.

He was indicted on three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon and one count of assault causing serious bodily injury.

He was jailed on $175,000 secured bond.

His case was moved to the third session of the case management system — which offers defendants three chances to resolve or plead their case before trial.

He is set to appear in court Aug. 26.

Nick Bagshawe, who was appointed as his attorney, has withdrawn due to a conflict of interest.

David Waters is now representing Knott, who was arrested Feb. 12 when he was seen near the Food Lion in Henderson.

He apparently ran from an officer but was tracked by his footprints in the snow.
