Hamden man in jail for nursing home robbery
(WOUB) - A 23-year-old man is in jail in connection with the armed robbery at a McArthur nursing home last month.

The Vinton County Sheriff's Office says Kristopher Nickel of Hamden is facing a felony charge of aggravated robbery.

Deputies arrested Nickel on Tuesday after an investigation into the robbery.

The Sheriff's Office says Nickel entered the Twin Maples Nursing Home just after 1 a.m. on July 5.

Nickel allegedly threatened a nurse with a knife, demanding keys to a locked medicine cabinet.

The nurse, Peggy Cupp, chased Nickel and managed to get the keys back before Nickel took off on foot.

Nickel's bond is set at $25,000.
