HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

An alleged weekend armed robbery in the Hub City landed a Hattiesburg man behind bars.

“A female victim was approached just before 10 p.m. Saturday by a suspect in the front yard in the 2300 block of Alive Drive,” said Hattiesburg Police Lt. Jon Traxler. “The suspect walked up to the victim, displayed a handgun and took her purse.”

According to Traxler, the suspect was later spotted walking along Lincoln Road and stopped by an officer and taken into custody.
