Gregory Walker, 28, of Bordentown allegedly tried to rob a man near the probation department payment window on the first floor of the courthouse. Walker allegedly followed the victim into the courthouse, and then repeatedly reached for the victim’s front pants pockets instructing him to “run your pockets.” When the victim attempted get away from Walker, he hit him, causing a cut to his face.

Walker then fled the building and sheriff’s officers caught him across the street from the Mercer County Criminal Courthouse at 400 South Warren Street.
