Pete Ramon-Allen Anderson and Scott Hampton

Peter Ramon-Allen Anderson and Scott Hampton each face a charge of second-degree robbery for allegedly taking a man’s bike at knifepoint Sunday outside the Goodwill in Centralia.

Two Centralia men were charged Monday in Lewis County Superior Court with robbery in the second degree after allegedly stealing a man’s bicycle at knifepoint outside the Goodwill store in Centralia.

Peter Ramon-Allen Anderson, 23, and Scott David Hampton, 31, were held on $10,000 and $25,000 secured bail ahead of an arraignment hearing scheduled for Thursday. Superior Court Judge James Lawler sided with requests made by deputy prosecutor Will Halstead when setting bail for both men. According to Halstead, Hampton has a pending case related to stolen property in Pierce County and an active warrant for an assault charge in Lakewood. Anderson has a history of jumping bail.

According to court documents, Centralia Police Officers responded to the Goodwill at 519 Harrison Avenue, where a man reported that he had gotten into a verbal dispute with Hampton and Anderson. The three men have had issues with each other in the past, according to the alleged victim.

The dispute escalated to the point that Hampton and Anderson allegedly pulled out knives and made threats. An initial report made by police stated the two men used pepper spray and did not make mention of knives. The victim claimed he ran from both men as they called him a chicken for doing so. The two men then allegedly took the victim’s bicycle.

Without getting into specifics, because I wasn't there, 10 and 25 thousand dollars are the sorts of bail I expect when not just one man but two threaten death over so small a thing as a bike. Very frankly, Your Honor, the point was not the bike. The point was the means used to obtain it.
