Man shot by woman during alleged Raleigh mugging appears in court

RALEIGH, NC (WTVD) -- A man shot while allegedly trying to mug a woman in downtown Raleigh is out of the hospital and behind bars.

Wednesday afternoon, Jonathan Peace faced a judge for the first time on charges of common law robbery and assault on a female.

Raleigh police drew up a warrant for Peace after the woman was mugged and he was shot in downtown Raleigh's central business district on Thursday afternoon.

But the warrant wasn't made public until it was served Wednesday, after Peace was released from the hospital.

In it police say Peace, who has an extensive criminal record and was on probation, charged the woman, pushed her, kicked her, pulled her hair and stole her iPhone.

It's not clear whether the woman pulled the gun from police say she fired one shot and hit Peace in the chest.

It's also not clear whether the gun was concealed and, if so, whether the woman had a conceal-and-carry permit.

No matter, police say they don't plan to charge her at this point in the investigation.
