Suffolk Street man arrested for January robbery

A 36-year-old Suffolk Street man was arrested Tuesday night for allegedly robbing an elderly man in January.

Malik Jones was charged with robbery in the third-degree and harassment. He is accused of going to the East Delavan Avenue home of a much-older man who had owed him $20 for some time, according to the victim and the victim’s wife.

When Jones arrived at the man’s home on Jan. 8 about 1:30 p.m. he was handed the $20 but then he punched the older man in the face, knocked him to the floor and took another $57 from him before leaving, police reported.
