Los Angeles (CNN) — Peter Robbins was a child when he provided the iconic voice for Charlie Brown, still heard every year when the classic 1960s television movies are rebroadcast.

Today, Robbins is in the San Diego County jail, inmate No. 13704837, facing charges of threatening a police officer, a doctor and two others with death.

Robbins, 56, goes before a judge Wednesday afternoon. His initial bail was set at $550,000, according to jail records.

Border Patrol agents arrested Robbins late Sunday as he entered the United States from Mexico at the San Ysidro, California, port of entry, according to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman.

A computer check of his passport revealed that Robbins, who was driving into the country alone in a 2006 Mercedes, was wanted in San Diego on a felony warrant, Customs spokesman Ralph DeSio said.

Robbins acknowledged to police that he is the same Peter Robbins who was the child actor, San Diego Police spokesman Gary Hassen said.

The four counts of threatening death and one stalking charge involve four victims, including a San Diego Police sergeant. Robbins allegedly threatened the officer with bodily harm during a January 13 incident, Hassen said.

Police in Oceanside and Carlsbad, California, are also investigating incidents there, Hassan said.

CNN was unable to contact Robbins or a representative for comment.
