$1 offer leads to armed robbery attempt

A panhandler tired to rob a man at knifepoint Monday after he agreed to give her a dollar, police say.

Shayna L. Edens, 29, was arrested on a first-degree robbery charge outside Huckleberries market, 926 S. Monroe, after a man said she'd threatened him with a knife about 5:55 p.m.

The man said he'd removed a dollar from his wallet after she asked, but that she confronted him with the knife and told him to giver her his wallet after he sat down in his vehicle.

The alleged victim told Edens he needed to stand up to get his wallet, then grabbed her wrist, causing her to drop the knife, Spokane police say.

Edens remains in jail on $25,000 bond after appearing in Superior Court Tuesday .
