A Sioux Falls man, 24-year-old Napolean Gene Ducheneaux, is behind bars, staring at robbery charges after attempting to steal medicine from a store, then getting into a fight with a store employee.

KSFY TV is reporting the incident took place around 2:20 Saturday morning (January 7) at a Sioux Falls business located near 10th Street and Sneve Avenue.

Ducheneaux allegedly took four bottles of cough medicine from the store without paying for them. A store employee spotted him in the act, followed him outside and confronted him the parking lot of the business. According to authorities, the two eventually got into a scuffle that resulted in the store employee getting punched in the face.

After being hit, the store employee was somehow able to recover the medicine and make his way back towards the business, when Ducheneaux followed him and attempted to start another fight.

Police officers arrested Ducheneaux a short time later and charged him with second degree robbery.
