Florida man accused of taking hostages during attempted armed robbery in Lake County

Fox 35 Orlando

A Florida man was arrested Friday for an attempted armed robbery at a business in Eustis, according to authorities, which prompted a hostage situation. 

Around 3:07 p.m. on Friday, investigators said 36-year-old Jacob Parrish entered the business located at 127 N. Bay Street armed with a knife. He encountered an employee and said he was there to commit a robbery, police said. 

"The manager of the business had everybody run into an office there where they were able to barricade themselves," explained Capt. Jon Fahning with the Eustis Police Department. "Fortunately, they had a phone with them. They were able to call us, and we were able to respond very quickly."
