Tip Leads Police to Suspect’s Location

Police arrest a man accused of stabbing a woman during a robbery in downtown Salina.

Captain Mike Sweeney tells KSAL News that investigators received information on the location of 44-year-old James Anthony Brown Monday night and arrested him at a house located at 154 N. 8th Street around 8pm.

Police allege that Brown was armed with a knife when he walked into the Iron Street Coffee Roaster, 119 E. Iron, and told the female employee to open the cash register.

Police say he then stabbed the woman on the left side of her neck and ran out with an undisclosed amount of cash.

The woman drove herself to the hospital where she was treated for a half-inch deep puncture wound and released.

Brown is now facing multiple charges that include aggravated robbery, aggravated battery and kidnapping.
