A resident of Laketown Wharf Resort woke up in his closet to find he had been robbed of about $2,000 in cash and miscellaneous cards.

PANAMA CITY BEACH — A second suspect in the beating, binding and robbing of a Panama City Beach man inside his condo has been returned to answer for the crime, according to arrest reports.

Rogerdale Richard Forehand, 27, appeared in court Sunday to have a bond set on charges of armed robbery and false imprisonment. He had been sought since Feb. 14 after a resident of Laketown Wharf Resort, 9902 S. Thomas Drive, woke up in his closet to find he had been robbed of about $2,000 in cash and miscellaneous cards. Forehand, of Vancleave, Mississippi, was given a bond of $40,000 in the case while his co-defendant, Edwin Fredrick Reynolds, 27, of Panama City, remains in custody on a $350,000 bond, court records show.

Both men have been ordered to not have contact with the victim. It was unclear from court records if a third person is being sought, although a third participant is named in connection with the robbery.

According to Panama City Beach Police Department reports, authorities tied the two suspects to the crime scene by DNA collected from a water bottle and beer can from which the suspects drank.

Officers reported the incident started when the victim was at a nearby bar about 11:30 p.m. Feb. 13 and met an unknown woman. An unknown man, claiming to be the woman’s brother, also was at the bar, and the victim eventually invited the woman back to his condo, police reported.

“On the way to his condo, (the victim) stopped at McDonald’s to purchase food for the female,” officers wrote. “Upon arrival at McDonald’s, (the victim) was met by the man claiming to be the female’s brother as well as an additional white male.”

The group then went to his condo, where the victim cooked the two men a pizza and provided them with drinks. Shortly after, one of the men pulled a pistol and demanded the combination to the victim’s safe, police reported.

“Next thing (the victim) remembered was being struck by the two males until he lost consciousness,” officers wrote. “A short time later, (he) woke up in a closet with his hands tied together.”

After looking around his condo, the victim realized $2,000 in cash and several miscellaneous cards had been taken. He then called police.

As crime scene investigators went over the evidence, they collected DNA samples from the mouth of a water bottle and a beer can the suspects drank from while at the victim’s condo. The DNA was sent off for testing and came back matching that of Reynolds and Forehand. A warrant was issued for the men’s arrests, PCBPD reported.

Reynolds was taken into custody about a month afterward, but PCBPD officers only recently were able to arrest Forehand. The woman was not identified in police reports and does not appear to have been arrested as a co-defendant in the case.
