DOVER, Del.- Police have arrested a suspect accused of holding up an elderly man in downtown Dover.

William Loper, 22, was taken into custody Monday by Dover police on a warrant charging him with first-degree robbery and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. Bond information is not yet available.

Police said Loper was wanted in connection with an incident that occurred at around 4:30 a.m. Friday, when he approached an elderly man in the area of South Bradford and West Reed streets and asked for change. Investigators said that as the victim pulled out cash from his wallet and began counting out change, Loper displayed a sharp instrument described as a knife or screwdriver and snatched the money from the victim's hands.  Loper then fled with an undisclosed amount of cash, police said.

Detectives obtained warrants for Loper and arrested him on the aforementioned charges without incident shortly before 11 a.m. Monday.
