    The transient man who was accused of threatening a woman and her 4-month-old baby in a Kohl’s bathroom in College Grove last month pleaded guilty today to a felony charge of attempted robbery.

    According to police, on Dec. 12 James Robert Arringdale, 20, waited in a bathroom stall, then tapped the victim on the shoulder with a knife when she entered the bathroom.

    She pushed a cart toward him and yelled, “Stop him!” before he fled. Both the mother and baby were unharmed.

    Arringdale was arrested six days later in Hillcrest. He will be sentenced to a year in jail on Feb. 3. Charges of assault with a deadly weapon and burglary were dismissed in exchange for the guilty plea.
