A man arrested Sunday was charged with the Oct. 22 beating and robbery of a woman near the suspect’s Stevens Avenue home.

Rikki Cason, 34, was charged with second-degree robbery, third-degree assault, grand larceny, criminal mischief, harassment and obstructing governmental administration. He also is accused of stealing the victim’s wallet containing $85 in cash and Social Security card, then avoiding police for almost a week after the victim lodged a complaint.
