The Leaf-Chronicle reports today that Clarksville police have arrested a man suspected of armed robbery.
Last week, a pizza delivery driver was apparently robbed after making a 9 p.m. delivery to a Needmore Road apartment. The delivery man was returning to his vehicle when a man kicked the door of his car open, put a gun against the driver's neck and threatened to shoot the driver if he moved.
The man with the gun was, according to the driver, accompanied by another man.
The man with the gun demanded the driver hand over all his money, which the driver apparently did. He handed over about $85.
The two men then ran towards some Pin Oak Road apartments, the driver told law enforcement officials.
Police then set up a search team using police dogs for the alleged robbers.
A woman who was driving in the vicinity told police officers that she had seen a man with a gun in his hand, running between apartment buildings. She gave a partial description of him, including hair done in dreadlocks.
Later, police arrested a Clarksville man, 21 years old, and charged him with aggravated robbery. He was booked into Montgomery County Jail and bail was set at $25,000.
There was no word on the status of his alleged accomplice.
