D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -

It started as a cab ride from D'Iberville to New Orleans. It ended with a Texas man in the Harrison County jail. In between the ride and the arrest were reports of a gun, a knife, an armed robbery, a chase on foot, and a carjacking.

In custody is 23 year old Nathan Brustein of Plano, Texas. He reportedly got in a cab late Tuesday night outside the Target in D'Iberville and asked the driver to take him to New Orleans. When the man said he only had $20, the cab driver pulled onto the shoulder of I-10. That's when D'Iberville police say Brustein pulled out a knife, stole money from the cab driver and ran into the woods.

Police say they hunted for Brustein overnight, but never found him. Almost 15 hours later, the suspect allegedly resurfaced. This time, he was in front of the D'Iberville Walmart.

Police say he approached a woman, pointed a knife toward her, and demanded her keys. When the woman refused, Brustein reportedly ran through the parking lot. Seconds later, a patrolman near Sangani Boulevard captured him. Reportedly in his possession was a knife and a toy gun.

Brustein is charged with armed robbery and carjacking. Bond was just set at $500,000. D'Iberville police say Brustein does have a criminal record, and is considered a habitual offender.
