LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - A Louisville man committed back-to-back robberies Friday night, stealing beer from a liquor store and then a package left at someone's door, and one of the crimes was caught on a witness's camera, Metro police said.

According to an arrest report, Keegan Brown, 21, entered Liquor Store in the 400 block of Oak Street just before 9 p.m. Friday and threatened force and physical injury while stealing the six-pack of beer. The witness gave up the beer without a fight.
