He must have wanted a smoke really badly.
Police arrested an 18-year-old man after they say he threatened to stab two individuals unless they gave him a cigarette.
According to charges filed in 3rd District Court, the two individuals were near 1232 W. 500 South on Aug. 30 when a young man approached them to bum a cigarette. When the two rebuffed his request, the man pulled out a pocket knife and waved it at them in a threatening motion. He said he'd stab them if they did not give him a cigarette. The man then ran away to a house.
One of the individuals later identified for police a knife found in the house as the knife the man threatened them with.
The man has been charged with one count of aggravated robbery, a first-degree felony. Bail was set at $25,000.
