The man who reportedly attacked a great-grandmother in East Cleveland and was then shot in the stomach after charging at the officers who responded was arraigned in court Friday.

Ramir Bell, 29, of Pittsburgh, was given a $75,000 bond. He has been charged with felonious assault, two counts of felonious assault on a peace officer, and discharge of a firearm on or near prohibited premises.

Bell reportedly attacked Vicky Robinson as she was walking down the street in the 1800 block of Beersford Road on Sunday, June 17.

"Something just told me to turn around, and when I turned back around, it was too late to react to anything because he was up on me," explained Robinson. "He just snatched me by my neck and threw me down like he was throwing one of y'all down and just started choking me for no reason at all."

Police quickly responded to the scene, according to reports. Body camera showed Bell charging at police. One officer shot Bell in the stomach. Officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
