Robbers picked wrong victim

November 17, 2009 6:19:42 AM PST
After being robbed of his jacket, cell phone, keys and $300, a Pennsylvania man was left with the odd feeling that his assailants looked familiar. Police say that's because they went to school together about 15 years ago. Erie police arrested 30-year-old Anthony Williams on Monday on charges of robbery, terroristic threats and simple assault. The other suspect has not been found.

They say Williams was one of two men who accosted the victim outside a convenience store Oct. 17.

Police say the victim recognized Williams because they both attended Central Career and Technical School in the mid-1990s. The victim brought old yearbooks to the police station and identified a newer picture of Williams from a photo lineup.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Williams.
