Waterloo man charged in armed robbery


WATERLOO — A Waterloo man was arrested Friday after police say he robbed another man at a cookout at gunpoint.

Stephen Devon Phillips, 27, of 207 W. Fifth St., #307, was arrested at 111 Linwood Ave. and charged with felony first-degree robbery.

Waterloo Police were called around 8:45 p.m. Friday about an armed robbery.

Leon Young-Fisher and several witnesses told police they were having a cookout when Phillips arrived, pointed a handgun at Young-Fisher and demanded his money, according to a police report.

Phillips then took Young-Fisher’s cell phone, apartment keys and cards, including an EBT card, and fled in a vehicle.

Phillips was later arrested early Saturday morning and booked into the Black Hawk County Jail, where he remains on a $204,000 bond.
