SPARKS, NV - Sparks police have arrested a man for allegedly trying to rob a Sparks 7-11 with a knife.

Police tell us the incident happened around 6PM Tuesday at the 7-11 on Pyramid Way near I-80.

Police tell us before they arrived on scene, the suspect, Johnnie Ironcloud, had asked for a cab, then reportedly told employees he was "losing it," and they should call 911.

Investigators then tell us Ironcloud grabbed a bottle of alcohol from a store cabinet and began to drink it. Ironcloud then allegedly started waving a large knife at the employees and customers, eventually getting them behind the store's front counter.

The employees and customers inside the store were about to exit the store unharmed as officers entered the 7-11 and arrested Ironcloud for robbery with a deadly weapon; his bail is $40,000.
