JUNEAU - Two men and a woman pleaded not guilty to felony charges Wednesday stemming from an alleged robbery last week.

A grand jury on Friday indicted Tillie Santos, 45, Rafael Lopez, 34, and Joseph Cropley, 40, on charges of first-degree aid and abet robbery, Class A felonies punishable by up to 20 years in prison. Lopez was also indicted on one count of felony assault, punishable by up to 5 years in prison.

The Juneau Police Department received a report around 10 p.m. on Jan. 18 that a man was injured after being attacked by three people in the 8200 block of Glacier Highway. The victim was allegedly punched and kicked several times before a stun gun was used on him and he was threatened with a knife held to his face, according to court documents.

A trail has been set for May 3.

Santos, Lopez, and Cropley had their bail set at $50,000 each and are presently being held in the Lemon Creek Correctional Center.
