SULPHUR, LA (KPLC) -

A Sulphur man has been arrested on an armed robbery charge, authorities said.

Sulphur Police spokesman Jason Gully said Joshua D. Leday was arrested in connection with a Tuesday night incident at a bank on Ruth Street.

Gully said the victim was making a deposit when she was approached by a knife-wielding, masked suspect.

"The victim said the suspect yelled at her to give him the money," Gully said Thursday in a news release. "The victim stated she threw the money bags on the ground."

Gully said Leday, who was identified through surveillance videos from the bank and other area businesses, confessed to the armed robbery.
