Authorities have arrested an 18-year-old man in a pair of armed holdups where women were robbed of their purses.
Julian "JuJu" Green is facing two counts of aggravated robbery and two counts of theft of property. He was arrested about 1 p.m. Thursday at his home in the 5600 block of West 51st Street.
Police say Green was identified by the victims in armed robberies at 1801 Reservoir Road on Tuesday and 9600 Satterfield Drive earlier Thursday.
In the Tuesday robbery, the victim told authorities she recognized the assailant's voice as the father of a child whose mother lives in another apartment in her complex. Authorities then identified Green as a suspect.
Green remained in the Pulaski County jail Friday morning with bail not yet set.
