SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Police say a Sioux Falls man was robbed with a letter opener after accepting help from a stranger.

Police spokesman Sam Clemens tells the Argus Leader (https://argusne.ws/1C2BNcs) the 25-year-old victim was waiting for a cab outside a Sioux Falls bar when 50-year-old David Person told the victim he could save him money by giving him a ride home.

Clemens says the two then walked about a dozen blocks to Person’s apartment. Once inside, Person allegedly pulled what the victim thought was a knife from his pocket, held it to the victim’s throat and demanded money.

The victim left the apartment and called police, who found Person inside his unit with the money and a letter opener.

Person is charged with first-degree robbery. Court documents do not list a defense attorney.
