BIG SPRING - A robbery in Big Spring on Friday afternoon has a man behind bars.

Police say 28-year-old Benjamin Moore knocked on the door of a house, whipped out a toy pistol, telling the man at the door he had given Moore a ride earlier in the day.

When the man lunged, Moore pulled out a knife and demanded his wallet and watch.

Moore punched the man in the face and then kicked him when he was down.

A woman inside the home called the police from a closet.

Moore ran out the front door, and police caught up with him a few blocks away.

He is charged with aggravated robbery and evading arrest, and is in the Howard County Jail on $26,500 bond.
