BELLEFONTE, Ark. (AP) — Authorities have arrested a Newton County man accused of shooting the owner of a north Arkansas flea market and hitting him over the head with a banjo.

Boone County Sheriff Danny Hickman says authorities arrested 27-year-old Phillip Engles without incident on Monday afternoon. Engles was arrested on suspicion of robbery and attempted murder and is being held without bond. Authorities did not know if he had an attorney.

Authorities allege that Engles robbed Unique Treasures near Bellefonte on Saturday. Store owner Ken Warren tells the Harrison Daily Times that he was shot in the head and hit with a banjo in the attack.

Warren says he was taken to a hospital in Springfield, Mo., but was back at work Monday.
