LAS VEGAS (AP) - The man accused of robbing and beating NFL player Javon Walker was scheduled to be in court Friday, his second appearance this week.
Arfat Fadel must go before Justice of the Peace Tony Abbatangelo. Fadel did not have to attend court Thursday for Abbatangelo to review paperwork.
The 30-year-old Fadel told another judge Wednesday that police pressured his girlfriend to press separate domestic violence charges against him before he was arrested in the Walker case.
That judge refused Fadel's request to reduce his $13,000 bail in that case and set a preliminary hearing for July 9 on felony kidnapping, coercion and misdemeanor domestic violence battery charges. Fadel remains at the Clark County jail in Las Vegas.
Police say Fadel faces multiple felonies, including kidnapping, robbery, battery and conspiracy in the June 16 robbery and beating that left Walker unconscious on a street off the Las Vegas Strip.
The Oakland Raiders wide receiver told police he lost about $3,000 in cash and $100,000 worth of jewelry. He was hospitalized for what police said were facial injuries and a concussion.
Police say Walker spent several hours club-hopping late June 15 and into the morning before ``willingly'' getting into Fadel's black Range Rover with Fadel and another alleged assailant.
Walker said he didn't know the men, police said. Investigators are still searching for the other suspect.
