A man was arrested on suspicion of arming himself with a box cutter during a Camp Street robbery earlier this month.
The incident was reported at about 1 p.m. on March 2, when a victim flagged down an Eighth District police officer and told them a male suspect, identified as 33-year-old Jeffrey Fenner, had attempted to rob him in the 100 block of Camp Street, according to New Orleans Police.
The victim told police that Fenner allegedly took his cell phone, then armed himself with a box cutter and demanded money.
Fenner was still on scene armed with the box cutter when the officer contacted him and gave verbal commands to drop the weapon, which he did, according to New Orleans Police, adding that Fenner was taken into custody without injuries.
Fenner was booked into Orleans Parish Justice Center on suspicion on armed robbery and aggravated assault with a dangerous weapon. Bail was set at $20,000.
