A man charged with shooting a security guard during an attempted robbery last month in northwest Indiana has been charged with two other holdups from December.

Stephen Spivey, 21, tried to rob the One Stop Mart in the 700 block of West 45th Avenue in Gary, Ind., at gunpoint Dec. 30, according to a statement from Gary police. About fifteen minutes later, he robbed the King Gyro restaurant in the 5500 block of North Broadway in Merrillville, Ind.

Spivey, who lives in Gary, has been charged with attempted robbery and felony criminal recklessness for the Gary incident and armed robbery for the Merrillville case, police said.

At the time the charges were filed, Spivey was already in custody for a Jan. 22 robbery attempt at the ABC Phone Store in the 4200 block of Broadway in Gary, during which a security guard was shot in the chest and seriously wounded, police said.

For that robbery, he was charged with attempted armed robbery resulting in serious bodily injury, attempted armed robbery, battery with a deadly weapon, and battery resulting in serious bodily injury, according to police.

Anyone with additional information about any of the robberies is asked to contact Det. Sgt. Gregory Wolf at (219) 881-1210 or the Crime Tip Line at (866) CRIME-GP.
