Robbery took place Sunday

Niagara Regional Police arrested a Welland man after a Niagara Falls woman was allegedly robbed Sunday afternoon.
Police said the 55-year-old woman reported that when she was leaving a bank, in the area of Lundy’s Lane and Dorchester Rd., a male entered her car through the passenger side door.
“He pointed a knife at the victim and demanded cash. She handed over an undisclosed amount of money and the suspect then fled the area, in his own vehicle,” police said in a release.
The victim suffered a minor injury as a result of this incident, but did not require medical attention.
Detectives, with the assistance of uniform officers, from Niagara Falls and Welland, located and arrested 32-year-old Todd Mayer of Welland.
Mayer was charged with one count of robbery and one count of failing to comply with a probation order. 

Man and women steal from home
