Trailed to jail

A 16-year-old tried to hold up a man on Lafayette Avenue on Jan. 19 — but ended up getting arrested after he foolishly followed his victim to a nearby business.

The victim said he was near S. Oxford Street at 12:15 pm when the thief approached and said, “Empty your pockets.” The victim ignored him and walked into a convenience store at nearby Cumberland Walk.

The thief followed suit, only to end up running from the store after an employee called 911.

Where: Lafayette Avenue and South Oxford Street
