Teen arrested after trying to rob police station
DALLAS — An 18-year-old man has been jailed and charged with robbery and theft after he was accused of trying to rob a suburban Dallas police headquarters.
Keithan Kennard Manuel is in Dallas County jail with bonds totaling $300,000 after the incident at the Wilmer Police Department, 15 miles south of Dallas.
His attorney, Carl Hays of Dallas, didn’t return messages from The Associated Press seeking comment on Tuesday.
Police records show Manuel walked into the police station Saturday, wearing a white towel over his hands, and told the dispatcher to hand over the station’s money.
The records show Manuel changed his request to asking if there were any warrants against him, but as the dispatcher checked Manuel said he had a gun.
Two officers were summoned to arrest him.
