Police have charged Wiltha Zhemone Brown with robbing a woman at a house on Williams Street Saturday.

Brown, 32, of 4302 Dorris St., is charged with aggravated robbery.

Lisa Ann Kelley said she went to 2626 Williams St. to play cards with several people. She said she ended up in the room alone with Brown. She said he pulled out a knife and jumped over her, then grabbed her purse.

She said she tried to fight him, but he ran out of the house with the purse.

An officer searching the area spotted Brown near 2800 Market St. and detained him. Ms. Kelley walked up and saw Brown in the back of a patrol car. She made a positive identification of him.

She said there had been $934 cash, a $50 check, three gold coins, a cigarette lighter pack and a bag of change in her purse when Brown took it.

Officers found the purse by a tree line at a nearby park. There was no money inside. The cigarette lighter was in a garbage can.

Brown had a knife on him.

Brown said he had been playing cards with Ms. Kelley and smoking cocaine with her, but he denied robbing her.

Brown had a three-year suspended sentence for burglary in 2000, then got an eight-year sentence for aggravated rape in 2004.
