A Selma man was arraigned Friday on several counts of robbery.

Tyrone Strong Jr., 16, was charged with two counts of first-degree robbery, according to Dallas County District Attorney Michael Jackson.

At the arraignment, Dallas County District Court Judge Bob Armstrong set Strong’s bond at $1 million.

Jackson said Strong is a member of one of Selma’s biggest gangs and one of Selma’s most wanted.

According to the Dallas County District Court, Strong was involved in a robbery on April 23. The victim, Charles Perry, was parked at the car wash on the corner of Griffin Avenue and Marie Foster Street.

Strong walked up with a pistol and pointed it at Perry. Strong demanded Perry give him money from his wallet, which contained $130. Strong took the cash and went straight to GWC homes.

Armstrong set Strong’s preliminary hearing for July 7 at the Dallas County Courthouse.
