(WMC-TV) - A Memphis man already accused of attacking a popular crossing guard is back in jail.

Donell Johnson, 20, is all smiles in his mug shot, but he is facing more time after his second arrest on robbery-related charges.

The first time involved popular Richland Elementary crossing guard Linda Foster.

Memphis Police say Johnson swiped her purse after Foster put up a fight during an attempted carjacking at an ATM.

"He got scared and then he reached over there and got my purse that had my teeth and my hearing aid in it," said Foster.

Action News 5 helped Foster replace her stolen items, and she later identified Johnson in a lineup.

But within weeks of a court appearance, police say he was back to his old ways.

They say Johnson was caught on surveillance camera at the Stage Road Home Depot.

He and an accomplice are accused of trying to rob a female customer at gunpoint in the parking lot before driving away.

Johnson was arrested last Friday and charged with that crime.

Johnson's rap sheet includes at least eight arrests in Shelby County on charges including robbery and theft.

He is being held on a $350,000 bond.
