North Platte man arrested for 2020 Kearney robbery

KEARNEY, Neb. -- A North Platte man has been arrested nearly a year after a Kearney business was held up at knife point.

40-year old Jason Bryant is charged with robbery and a felony weapon count. This arrest stems from a robbery last July at the River Valley Skills Casino in Kearney.

Bryant faces up to 50 years in prison if convicted.

A second man, 34-year old Matthew Rauterkus, of North Platte, also faces multiple counts related to the robbery. He'll be back in court later this month for a preliminary hearing.
