Woman tells Paris police she was robbed by man who hid in back seat
Paris police are investigating a woman’s report that she was robbed after leaving a convenience store on North Main Street about 5 a.m. today, Assistant Police Chief Randy Tuttle said.
The woman told police officers that “she got back into her vehicle and started north on North Main when a black male popped up behind her in the back seat,” Tuttle said.
The man “then produced a knife and demanded her money,” Tuttle said officers were told. The woman said she complied, and the man got out of the vehicle and she last saw him going north.
Tuttle said the suspect reportedly was wearing a dark-colored hoodie and glasses.
The investigation is continuing.
Tuttle said police responded to 79 calls during the last 24 hours ending Friday morning, resulting in 10 arrests:
- Traffic 4
- Narcotics 2
- Criminal Mischief 1
- Theft 1
- Warrants 1
- Open Container 1
Police also had reports of fraud, burglary of auto, theft, disturbance, theft of vehicle, and assault, Tuttle said.
