Bell walked into Seductions, a store on College Avenue, around 9 p.m. and when an employee confronted him about stealing a sex toy he pulled out a knife, the arrest report states.

Bell attempted to flee the store, but the clerk had already locked the front door, so he went to the sale counter and slammed his fist into the glass, shattering it, according to the report. The employee then unlocked the door and let Bell go.

Bell was arrested without incident a short time later while walking outside World Gym on College Avenue, the report states.
