Charges were filed on Wednesday against a 44-year-old transient man in Silverdale after the man allegedly produced a knife while attempting to purchase cigarettes.

Around 2:07 p.m. Oct. 9 Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputies received a report of a robbery that had just occurred at the ampm gas station on Ridgetop Boulevard in Silverdale.

According to charging documents, an employee of the gas station was confronted by Shawn Daniel Habener while he attempted to purchase cigarettes. After failing to produce an ID, Habener allegedly produced a knife, saying, “How about this?”

A statement of probable cause states that the suspect then fled on foot from the scene and was later detained at gunpoint by an officer. The employee who Habener allegedly threatened confirmed that he was indeed the individual who had presented the knife earlier, documents say.

Habener is being held on $25,000 bail.
