A Lawrence man arrested after allegedly shoving another man through the window of a downtown candy shop will have to stand trial on the charge.

District Judge Michael Malone on Wednesday afternoon ordered Richard F. Jarrett Jr., 23, to be held in the Douglas County Jail on a $10,000 bond for aggravated battery. Jarrett was arrested May 2 after an argument in the 800 block of Massachusetts. Witnesses said Jarrett hit a 30-year-old man several times and then pushed him through the window of Penny Annie's Sweet Shoppe, 845 Mass.

The victim was treated for a broken arm and cuts.

A trial on the aggravated battery charge has been scheduled for July 20 in Judge Malone's court room.

Jarrett was one of nine adults and juveniles arrested last September after three youths were stabbed in the 200 block of Glenview. Jarrett, who was charged in connection with a fight during the incident, was not charged with stabbing anyone. He was sentenced to two years of probation earlier this year by Malone, who said Jarrett could face an 18-month prison sentence if he violated the parole.
