A man who is charged with robbing a Youngstown-Poland Road restaurant at gunpoint was arraigned Monday in Struthers Municipal Court.

Gregory J. Chism, 21, of Youngstown pleaded not guilty. His bond was set at $36,000. He is charged with aggravated robbery, carrying a concealed weapon and obstructing official business.

Police said Chism ran from them as they searched for a suspect in the robbery at 12:37 p.m. Saturday.

Assisted by Campbell officers, police caught up with Chism on Lincoln Street. He resisted and was bitten by the Struthers police dog, a police report says.

A preliminary hearing in the case is set for Nov. 28.
