Suspicious incident reported at Arcade Liquor Store on Saturday, July 31.
The clerk stated she was doing inventory when a male customer came in and spoke to her. She said the man asked about different Tequila brands so she stepped behind to counter to wait on him to make his purchase.
She said he then asked her if she had any way of defending herself and he pulled out a knife and placed it on the counter, which scared her.
The complainant said the man made a purchase and left the store leaving the knife behind on the counter.
