Details

Victims provided police with a very good description of the man who tried to rob them, and officers flooding the area were able to arrest a suspect shortly after the failed robbery attempt. It took place around 8:20 p.m. last night as two women walked on W. Johnson St. They said a man suddenly appeared out of the shadows. He was wielding a knife and told one he wanted her phone. Her friend grabbed her arm, pulling her away, and both ran in the opposite direction. They called 911 immediately, which also increased officers' ability to locate the suspect. He was found in the 300 block of N. Brooks St. and arrested for the attempted armed robbery.
