Lafayette police arrested a 40-year-old man late Saturday accused of attacking a man with a broken bottle then stealing cash from his pockets after the victim fell to the ground.

The victim was walking down the 100 block of East Grant Street about 10:45 p.m. when David Sinegal walked up to him and struck him in the face with a broken bottle, cutting his chin, Lafayette police spokesman Cpl. Paul Mouton said on Sunday.

After the man fell to the ground, Sinegal rifled through his pockets and stole cash, Mouton said. Police canvassed the area and found Sinegal was still in the vicinity.

Sinegal, whose address was not available, was booked into the Lafayette Parish Correctional Center on counts of armed robbery.

Robber holds up Dollar Tree at gunpoint

Lafayette police searched for a robber who stole cash Saturday night at gunpoint from the Dollar Tree store in the 3800 block of Moss Street.

Two employees told police they locked the door and went into the office to fill out their end-of-the-night paperwork, police spokesman Cpl. Paul Mouton said. When they exited the office, a man wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt, gray sweatpants and a black ski mask was pointing a gun at them.

The robber took cash and fled the store, Mouton said. He did not say how much cash was taken.

Anyone with information on the robbery is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (337) 232-8477.
