Graham Fackler, 24, faces two counts each of armed robbery and assault with intent to commit robbery while armed. Fackler was arraigned Tuesday on the charges, records show.
Ypsilanti police responded at 10:40 p.m. Monday to the area of Jarvis and Lowell streets for two different robbery reports. A 37-year-old man and a 19-year-old man were both held up at knifepoint while walking in the area by Fackler, according to police.
Fackler did not know the men and the victims appeared to be random.
According to police, one of the men refused to give Fackler anything and the other did not actually have anything to give him during the robbery.
Ypsilanti police used a K-9 unit to track Fackler to a nearby apartment, where he was arrested.
Fackler has previous convictions for larceny in a building in Livingston County, assault with a dangerous weapon, malicious destruction of property worth more than $200 but less than $1,000 in Washtenaw County and stealing a financial transaction device in Livingston, according to state records.
He also pleaded no contest to delivery or manufacture of marijuana in Isabella County, state records show.
Fackler was discharged from state supervision on March 15, 2011, records show.
Court records show Fackler will return to court for a preliminary exam at 8:30 a.m. Tuesday. He’s being represented by the Washtenaw County Public Defender’s Office.
