Winston-Salem, NC -- Police arrested a man after he robbed a manager at the Dollar Tree on Cloverdale Avenue Saturday night.

Officers arrived at the store around 10:15 p.m.

The victim told police she was locking up the store when a man approached her, asking for directions. The suspect then assaulted the manager and grabbed her purse before running from the scene, police say.

A Harris Teeter security guard witnessed the robbery and told police which way the man ran.

Officers later found and arrested Jahmil Ishmil Alamin, 21, in the parking lot of NewBridge Bank at the intersection of Stratford Road and Miller Street. Police arrested Alamin without incident and recovered the victim's purse.

The victim did suffer minor injuries, but was treated at the scene of the robbery.

Al-Min was placed in jail under a $25,000 secured bond.
