Man arrested for robbing Blount County donut shop employee

MARYVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A man is in custody for robbing a donut shop employee early Saturday.

Deputies say a Richy Kreme Donuts worker told them she was assaulted outside around 3:00 AM.

She says a man took a moneybag with an undisclosed amount of cash and ran off.

The Criminal Investigation Division received information that led them to the individual in Knoxville, but he must face drug charges in Knox County before being released to the Blount County Sheriff’s Office.

The suspect's name isn't being released.

Additional charges against other individuals could be filed.
