AKRON, Ohio (WOIO) - A man wanted for robbing an 89-year-old woman outside the PNC bank on West Market Street was arrested Wednesday.

The victim’s money, debit cards, and other personal items were inside the purse.
She told police she wasn’t injured, just shook up.
An officer spotted Smith in the Highland Square area Wednesday and took him into custody without incident.
Smith is charged with robbery and locked up in the Summit County Jail.
