City police have made an arrest in connection with a robbery reported late Thursday in the alley between Ridge and Maryland avenues.

Jonathan L. Brown, 30, no fixed address, was charged with robbery Friday.

The victim told police someone had hit him in the side of the face and knocked him to the ground, then took his wallet which contained his identification card and $2 in cash. He gave police a description of his assailant, including the clothes he was wearing.

Police believe the man was wearing the same clothes when they spotted him Friday.
