An Arkansas man who was suspected of robbing an adult novelty store was arrested after the masturbator he’s alleged to have stolen fell out of his pocket as an officer approached him.
30-year-old Andrew Bell had entered Seductions in Fayetteville at about 9 p.m. Wednesday and looked around for roughly a half-hour before an employee saw him walking into a back room “attempting to get out of the sight” of the worker.
When the female employee went into that back room, she saw him “closing a pocket knife with an adult sex toy in his jacket.” When she told him to give the item back, he “refused and reopened his pocket knife” and started approaching her.
She locked him inside the store, but then he started messing with another customer, shattered a glass countertop with his fists, and started kicking the front door…so she unlocked it.
Moments later, a Fayetteville officer saw a man matching the suspect’s description walking just a few blocks away. As the cop blocked Bell with his patrol car, “an adult sex toy fell from behind him to the ground.” Bell had blood on both of his hands and “a club sticking out of his sleeve.” And lo and behold, he had a knife in the front pocket of his jeans.
He was arrested and charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, theft, and criminal mischief. He’s now residing in the Washington County jail.
