Bryant police arrested a man Thursday after he allegedly pulled a knife on a Wal-Mart store employee who confronted him about stealing items from the store a day earlier.

Stephen Edelmann, 28, was leaving the Wal-Mart at 400 Bryant Ave. around 4:30 p.m. Wednesday when a loss prevention officer at the store stopped and question him about stealing several items, a news release from the Bryant Police Department states.

According to the statement, Edelmann then pulled out a knife and swung it at the employee before fleeing to an older model white Nissan four-door vehicle and driving away before police arrived.

Authorities arrested Edelmann around 1 p.m. Thursday after locating a vehicle that matched the description of the one that left the scene the day before. Edelmann also matched the description of the robbery suspect, the release states. When questioned, police said Edelmann admitted to both taking the items and threatening the employee with the knife. Several of the stolen items were recovered by police.

Edelmann was charged with aggravated robbery, aggravated assault, theft of property and possession of methamphetamine for the purpose of delivery, all felonies. He will have a bond hearing Friday, the release states.
