In an unrelated development, police have announced the arrest of Antonio Santiago, 29, of the 2000 block of Kennedy Street, charging him with robbing a 94-year-old woman.

On April 8 at 2:10pm, the victim was walking home from Bell’s Corner Supermarket on the 8300 block of Loretto Avenue when an unknown male approached the victim from behind and grabbed the victim's pocketbook, pulling her to the ground and fled. After an intense investigation and submitting video to the media, numerous anonymous tips were received within days after the video was aired by local news stations.

Santiago was arrested April 14 and charged with robbery, aggravated assault and related charges.
