Police blotter: Man arrested for assault in parking lot

A 25-year-old man was arrested by police Thursday afternoon after he allegedly punched another person during a dispute in a parking lot.

Mohamed Roble faces charges of assault, drunk in public and obstruction of justice after the incident, which took place around 12 p.m. in the 8200 block of Russell Road (see map). Roble is accused of getting into a dispute with another man over a shopping cart. Police say Roble approached the man and punched him in the face as the argument escalated.

Officers arrived on the scene and attempted to stop Roble, who then ran away, the police said. He was eventually caught and taken into custody, where he remained as of Friday afternoon, according to court records.

Roble was also arrested last month after a standoff with police at a home in the Stoneybrooke neighborhood off of South Kings Highway.
