Kessel Court


A Kessel Court resident reported tussling with an armed man this morning during an attempted robbery outside of the victim's apartment. He told a police officer that he had gone out to his pickup truck to grab some cigars. He claims a stranger wielding a utility knife approached and demanded money after first asking for a cigarette. The victim told the man he did not have a cigarette, only cigars, and no cash. He ended up with some hand cuts and one to the back of the head. None required a stitch. The victim said his assailant ran off empty-handed.
