Campbellsville police say a man is behind bars after he held three people at knifepoint near a local university along with other crimes.

The Campbellsville Police Department responded to a call near Campbellsville University. Officers received word that a man had held three people at knifepoint and forced them to withdraw funds from an ATM.

Police then learned the same man had threatened a clerk at Convenient Food Mart with a knife before he ran away from the scene. The police department then received a third report that a man robbed two individuals in the area of Kerr and Carden Streets.

Authorities eventually captured the suspect, Richard L. Conner, in the Bell Court area. He was charged with first-degree robbery, disorderly conduct, menacing, and terroristic threatening.

Taylor County deputies assisted police in the investigation.
