DETROIT (AP) - Authorities say a 49-year-old man is charged in the robbery and carjacking of two women as they were leaving a Detroit casino.

The prosecutor’s office says Wayne Darrell Jones of Wayne County’s Redford Township was arraigned Monday and is held on $100,000 bond. Court records don’t list a lawyer for him. A scheduling conference is next week followed by an Oct. 5 hearing on whether the case goes to trial.

Police say the women ages 78 and 68 were in a parking garage about 5:30 a.m. Sept. 17 at MotorCity Casino when a man forced them into their car. They were left on a west side street.

A passer-by took them to a police precinct. Police say the women weren’t hurt, but cash, personal items and the car were taken.
