A 24-year-old Kennewick man was arrested Sunday after allegedly robbing a man and threatening to kill him, police said.
The victim, Abdelsalam Mustafamohamed, 60, of Kennewick, reported the strong-arm robbery Saturday, said Kennewick police Sgt. Ken Lattin.
Mustafamohamed said he was parked in a lot at 601 S. Kent St., when Abraham Thoual walked up to him at 12:40 p.m.
Thoual allegedly ripped off Mustafamohamed's glasses and punched him in the face, Lattin said.
Thoual reportedly then stole the victim's cellphone and threatened to kill him if he told anyone.
Mustafamohamed recognized Thoual from mutual friends and reported him.
The motivation of the crime is unknown.
On Sunday, Kennewick officers spotted Thoual near Seventh Place and Olympia Street and arrested him.
Thoual was booked into the Benton County jail on suspicion of first-degree robbery, felony harassment and destruction of property.
