CHICAGO — A judge detained a Chicago man as a public safety threat after prosecutors said he tried to rob another man at gunpoint while the victim’s 11-year-old daughter stood nearby.

“Give me everything out of your pockets,” Keyomontae Fisher, 18, allegedly barked while pointing a gun at the 29-year-old victim at Subway, 2101 East 71st Street, on December 29.

The victim opened his wallet to show Fisher that it was empty, according to a Chicago police report. Fisher fled without getting anything. Officials said the robbery was completely random.

A police officer who regularly patrols the neighborhood recognized Fisher from the restaurant’s surveillance video, the report said. Two hours after the robbery attempt, cops spotted Fisher about a block from the restaurant and took him into custody.

Prosecutors and police said he admitted to the crime.

Judge Maryam Ahmad detained Fisher, noting that he told police he “stuck a gun in the face” of the victim, who was “with his little girl.” 

Fisher is on juvenile probation for aggravated battery, according to Ahmad’s detention petition. He has no other adult arrests in Cook County.
