Richwood police arrested a Monroe man on suspicion of aggravated assault last week after authorities received an incident complaint from a convenience store on Standifer Avenue and Reddix Lane.

According to the complaint, Troy Wayne Anthony, 50, of 418 Egan St., Monroe, attacked a store cashier with a knife and later refused to exit the store's cooler.

When police arrived, Anthony refused to exit the cooler when ordered to do so. Later, he exited the cooler while carrying a green pocket knife and a beer.

When asked what he was doing, Anthony told police he was looking for the restroom but made a wrong turn.

The store's video surveillance footage showed Anthony arguing with the cashier before drawing a knife, jumping toward the cashier and fleeing to the cooler.

Anthony was booked at Ouachita Correctional Center.
