LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A man claimed to be a serial killer and threatened to kill a store clerk during a robbery attempt at a Louisville Walmart Neighborhood Market early Friday, according to police.

Brent Kyle Falin, 51, entered the store on Dixie Highway just after midnight and attempted to make a purchase at the service counter, investigators said. His arrest report states that Falin became involved in a verbal argument with the clerk, pulled a syringe out of his pants pocket and said, "I already killed three people today. I'll kill you. Give me the money."

Police said the clerk told the man to leave, but he refused. The clerked then called police.

Responding officers located the man still inside the business and took him into custody. They said the syringe used to threaten the clerk was found in Falin's pants pocket.

Falin is charged with first-degree robbery.
