Police have arrested a man they say is responsible for attacking a man and robbing him of $20.

Police say it happened Sunday just after 7 p.m. at 3900 E Bijou Street at the Timberlane Apartments. The man was walking through the parking lot when police say he was confronted by 20-year-old Marquette Killingsworth, who struck the victim knocking him down and then went through his pockets taking $20.

The victim chased the suspect east to the Dove Tree Apartments. Police set up a perimeter while Canine Cole and his handler, Officer Strevett, searched to building 375, where Killingsworth was arrested and charged with robbery.
