Police say a 17-year-old boy witnessed the crime and chased after the suspect.

The suspect ran into a construction project at Short Street and Martin Luther King Boulevard, where police caught him.

Marvin K. Smith, 25, is charged first-degree robbery.

Police say they found a knife on Smith after they arrested him.

    Kudos to the 17 year old again. It does my old heart good to hear a teenager is doing more then destruction in this day and time. Most of the time you only hear the bad. This young man needs to be recognized for his bravery coming to the aid of a stranger. Way to go young man!!!!

    And who says all teenagers are bad? Kudos to the 17 year old for helping out. It's nice to hear about youngsters who do good versus all the stories we are bombarded with about bad teens.
