None of the victims required medical treatment.
A criminal records check of Smith revealed that he is a convicted felon, police said.
Smith was charged with two counts of criminal threatening - a class B felony, armed robbery - a class A felony, simple assault - a class A misdemeanor and convicted felons - a class B felony.
Smith was held on $100,000 cash bail pending his arraignment Monday.
