Alleged Knife Point Root Beer Robbery

KSAL Staff - February 1, 2016 1:05 pm


A Salina man was arrested after allegedly stealing a six-pack of root beer, and other items at knife point.

Police say that a 32-year-old female was in the process of moving from her apartment at 715 S. 9th Street. On Sunday she entered it to finish the move, and encountered a man inside with a knife.

The man, identified as 39-year-old Joseph Richards, allegedly took a six pack of Coney Island Root Beer, a $10 Chili’s gift card, and a small amount of cash.

Richards was arrested a short time later, walking in the area of 9th and Park Streets. The stolen items were recovered.

Richards could face charges that include aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.
