YORKTOWN, Indiana (AP) -- A man accused of snatching another man's false teeth straight from his mouth during a fight in Yorktown, Indiana, has been charged with robbery.
Robert Henry Stahl, 62, was charged Thursday in Delaware County Circuit Court with felony robbery and battery causing bodily injury, a misdemeanor. If convicted of robbery, he could face two to eight years in prison.
Police and prosecutors said they did not know if Stahl had retained an attorney.
Billie Townsend, 56, told police he went to a bar on July 27 to pay Stahl money he owed him, then Stahl asked him to go outside and started punching him repeatedly.
During the fight, Stahl allegedly put Townsend in a headlock and removed his false teeth. "He said, 'You ain't getting these back,"' Townsend told police.
Stahl did not attend Thursday's hearing and prosecutors did not seek a warrant for his arrest. Another hearing was scheduled for October 22.
Stahl had no number in published listings for Yorktown or Muncie in Indiana (http://topics.edition.cnn.com/topics/robbery) and he could not be reached for comment Friday.
