LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Jefferson County Sheriff's Office says a Doss High School student has been arrested after he robbed another student in a bathroom at the school last year.
According to an arrest warrant, it happened on Jan. 8, 2014. That's when authorities say 18-year-old Reginald Grinter and a juvenile accomplice pushed another student into the bathroom, where Grinter held the victim's arms back as the juvenile went through the victim's pockets.
The suspects took a smartphone worth $599, as well as $94 in cash, according to the arrest warrant. Authorities say they then fled the school grounds.
A representative of the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office interviewed the victim, and the student allegedly identified both suspects. Additionally, authorities say they have surveillance video of Grinter and his accomplice forcing the student into the bathroom.
Grinter was arrested on Thursday morning at Doss High School and charged with robbery and theft.
As he was being taken to jail, he allegedly threatened a Jefferson County Sheriff's Deputy, telling the officer that he was going to "stomp" the officer's "head into the ground," and that when he was released from jail, he would kill the officer. Authorities say he also made racial slurs against the officer.
Grinter was charged with terroristic threatening in connection with that alleged incident.
