A news report published in Patch states that Wilson was armed with a baseball bat and stormed into the store on Saturday afternoon.

Shattering display cases with swift swings of his bat, he tried to seize jewelry pieces with an estimated value surpassing $370,000. The chaos led three store employees to seek safe cover hurriedly.

The perpetrator's escape was short-lived. Per the report, Wilson was spotted dashing down Ring Road nearly three-quarters of an hour post-incident. Responding officers apprehended him on Clinton Avenue, managing a peaceful arrest.

In addition to first-degree attempted robbery and related charges, Wilson had an outstanding warrant for a prior robbery probation violation. An arraignment awaited him the following Sunday.
