A Fort Campbell man was arrested early Monday morning for allegedly attempting an armed robbery at a Country Club Lane apartment complex Sunday night.
The initial incident happened around 9:15 at 715 Country Club, when Demario Hollowell of Hopkinsville told city police he had been walking to his car when a man walked toward him with a gun and demanded money.
The would-be robber lowered his gun and walked away when another witness drove into the parking lot. The perpetrator then got in a car and drove toward Fort Campbell Boulevard.
Hopkinsville Police soon detained 20-year old Steven Jacobs, Jr. of Fort Campbell, who allegedly admitted to holding up Hollowell. Jacobs was arrested and charged with first degree attempted robbery and was lodged in the Christian County Jail on $25,000 bond.
