After witnesses described the suspect to police officers, Garcia was apprehended nearby. Police have charged Garcia with robbery.
The victim was not seriously injured.
"Franconia officers would like to thank the good Samaritans who assisted the victim and made the call, providing the information that led to Garcia’s arrest," reads a release from the police department.
