Police have charged Deron Maurice McGee with two separate robberies early Saturday morning at College Hill Courts.
McGee, 23, of 1216 Cypress Street Court, is charged with two counts of aggravated robbery.
Both robberies were between 4 and 5 a.m.
Andrienne Wallace said she was walking near the flagpole when a black male with distinctive hazel eyes snatched a $20 bill from her.
She said he acted like he was armed, but did not display a gun.
The woman said she later confronted the robber and asked for her money back. She said he responded by punching her in the face.
A short time later several blocks away, Mendon Price said McGee asked to stay the night. He agreed to let him in.
He said when he did that McGee demanded his money. He said he gave him $27, then he tried to pepper spray McGee. The victim was then punched in the face, leaving a knot and cut on his left eye.
An officer was told that McGee was seen running down a hill toward Grove Street. The officer apprehended him.
Police said he did have distinctive hazel eyes.
Both robbery victims made positive identifications.
