Man arrested in Abercrombie & Fitch cologne heist

Seattle police say a 49-year-old man is in jail after apparently using a knife to threaten employees at the downtown Abercrombie & Fitch store Tuesday night.

The man is believed to have shoplifted a bottle of cologne  after entering the store on the corner of 4th Avenue and Pine Street around 7:30 pm.  Management told officers that they had seen the man before; they believed that he may have previously shoplifted.  When employees confronted him by asking if he intended to pay for the item that he had placed in his gym bag, the man pulled out a knife, according to police.

Employees backed off and called 911. The man was booked into the King County Jail for investigation of robbery.
