Lodi Police arrested a man who allegedly stole a woman's purse at gunpoint Tuesday night.
David Rios, 32, of Lodi, is currently in San Joaquin County Jail on suspicion of robbery, in addition to a felony warrant for possessing a dangerous drug without a prescription, after being arrested behind Lodi City Hall Wednesday night, said Lodi Police Sgt. Eric VerSteeg.
Around 10 p.m. Tuesday, Rios allegedly approached a woman sitting in her car for money, VerSteeg said. When the woman refused, Rios allegedly pulled out a handgun, reached into the car and grabbed the woman's purse, VerSteeg added.
On Wednesday night, the woman spotted Rios and called police, who arrested him after a short foot pursuit.
