The violence involved in a robbery can be as simple as an assault against the victim. Remember an assault does not need to cause any physical injury, it only requires the application of force or threatening the application of force without consent. Therefore, threatening to physically harm someone during the course of stealing something from that person will constitute the use of violence required for robbery.
