Chopsticks, flat-screen television allegedly link Maurice Edwards of Amherst to assault and robbery

Maurice Edwards, of 170 East Hadley Road, pleaded not guilty in Hampshire Superior Court Monday to charges of unarmed robbery, assault and battery and larceny from a building before Judge C. Jeffrey Kinder.

Edwards was held on $2,500 cash bail. According to court records, on Jan. 5, Edwards was a guest in a Northampton home when an argument began. Edwards allegedly hit another man repeatedly and was later seen leaving the home carrying a flat-screen television.

Later that night, Edwards was a passenger in a vehicle stopped by police. Inside the vehicle was the TV reportedly taken by Edwards and other items including a pair of personalized chopsticks allegedly belonging to the victim.

Edwards is due back in court June 21 for a pre-trial hearing.
