Posted: October 15, 2013 - 10:18pm

Soldotna Police responded to a report of a man being threatened with a knife at Central Peninsula Hospital on Oct. 9.

Robert Luton, 27, of Soldotna, was arrested in Kenai and charged with third-degree assault and attempted first-degree robbery, both are felonies.

According to a police dispatch, the 32-year-old victim from Soldotna “supposedly” owed Luton money.

Sgt. Duane Kant said Luton brought the knife into the hospital in his pocket, and no one was injured during the altercation.

He said the victim was not necessarily a patient at the hospital and was not incapacitated.

The victim contacted police to report the threat at about 8:11 p.m.

Luton left the scene and received a ride at or near CPH to Kenai. Police were able to locate where he was dropped off by talking to witnesses.

Luton is in custody at Wildwood Pretrial Facility. He is scheduled to appear in District Court on Oct. 21.
