NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the Nacogdoches Police Department arrested a 54-year-old man in connection to allegations that he tried to rob a convenience store on South Street at knife point on April 6.
Scott E. Hamilton, of Nacogdoches, is still being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a first-degree felony aggravated robbery charge. No bail amount has been set for his charge yet.
According to the arrest affidavit, an NPD officer responded to the Chevron convenience store located at 3325 South Street to check out a report of an aggravated robbery. When the officer got to the scene he talked to the clerk, who told him that a man came into the store, pulled a bandana over his face, and pulled out a large knife.
The man, who was later identified as Hamilton, demanded the clerk give him money, the affidavit stated. Hamilton allegedly fled the convenience store after the clerk told him she couldn't give him money from the register.
NPD officers reviewed the store's surveillance video, and they were able to positively identify Hamilton. During a non-custodial interview with the police, Hamilton confessed to the crime, the affidavit stated.
