Around 7 a.m., police say a woman was walking in a parking lot located in the 3900 block of Llewellyn Avenue when she was confronted by a man asking for money.

The man then displayed a knife and demanded her to drive him to an ATM to withdraw money. The woman arrived at Navy Federal Credit Union, 7870 Tidewater Drive, where she was able to alert a customer to call police.

When police arrived on-scene they observed the suspect and after short foot pursuit, placed 53-year-old Andre L. Lewis Sr. under arrest.

As a result of the investigation, Lewis has been charged with Robbery, Abduction, Attempted Carjacking, and Larceny from Person.

Lewis is currently being held in the Norfolk City Jail without bond.
