A former child actor who provided the voice of Charlie Brown in several "Peanuts" animated television specials from 1965 to 1969 is set to be arraigned Wednesday on charges of making threats and stalking.

Peter Robbins, 56, who lives in Oceanside with his dog, Snoopy, was arrested at the border Monday as he was returning from Mexico. He is set to be arraigned in San Diego Superior Court on five felony charges.

Robbins has managed real estate in Van Nuys, hosted a radio talk-show in Palm Springs, and made an appearance at the 2008 Comic-Con convention in San Diego. As a youth, Robbins had appearances on several television shows, including "My Three Sons" and "Rawhide."

A plastic surgeon obtained a restraining order against Robbins three weeks ago, claiming Robbins threatened her because he was displeased with the breast augmentation the surgeon performed on Robbins' girlfriend, according to the North County Times. It was unclear whether the criminal charges involve Robbins' alleged threats to the surgeon.
