Robbery suspect left his 2 young children with victim, police say

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man is charged with a Christmas Eve 2013 robbery after which he left his two young children behind with the victim, according to police.

Investigators said Daniel Bentley, 32, his children, ages 4 and 5, and the victim were riding in the victim's car on December 24. The victim was carrying $400 cash to pay Bentley for the purchase of a vehicle. The two of them are acquainted.

According to an arrest warrant, when the victim stopped the car, Bentley grabbed the cash from his pocket by force, tearing the victim's shirt in the process.

Bentley then left the scene on foot, leaving his children inside the car with the victim, police said. The children were returned to their mother by Louisville Metro police.

Investigators said the children's mother has filed a pending, unserved domestic violence order against Bentley.

Bentley is charged with second-degree robbery and two counts of endangering the welfare of a minor.
