PLAINVILLE – A New Haven man is facing robbery charges after he allegedly used a knife to take an Xbox which he had arranged to purchase from Plainville resident.

Quinn Daniels, 21, of New Haven, agreed to buy the Xbox from the victim on a cell phone app called “Offerup,” police said. But when Daniels showed up at the arranged place to pick the item up, he pulled out a knife, stole the Xbox and fled, police said.

The investigation into the robbery led to Daniels who erroneously turned himself in at the Southington Police Department late Tuesday to face a Plainville arrest warrant charging him with first-degree robbery, disorderly conduct, sixth-degree larceny and first-degree reckless endangerment.

Daniels was held on $100,000 bond and is expected to be arraigned today in Bristol Superior Court.
