EAST COLUMBUS (Rob Wells) -- Columbus police say they've nabbed a 12-year-old boy in connection with the robbery of an 85-year-old woman near a COTA bus stop.

Martha Rieser says she was walking to her Eastland Manor apartment last Friday when two young men knocked her to the ground and took off with her purse and the $100 she'd just gotten from the bank. Riser says hearing the youth has been taken into juvenile custody gives her some relief. But she says she's still concerned about leaving her home alone.

In the meantime, investigators say they're still searching for a second suspect in that case.12 Year Old Arrested for Attack on 85 Year Old Woman
