DOVER, Del. — Police say they’ve arrested a man for robbing a 71-year-old woman leaving a drive-up ATM in Delaware.

Dover police say in a statement that the robbery happened Sunday at a Dover Federal Credit Union. Police say the woman withdrew an undisclosed amount of cash from the ATM and after she received the money a man got in the passenger side of her car, displayed a knife and demanded money.

Police say the woman was told to drive to another location but that the man fled on foot when he saw other vehicles in the area. Police say the man was arrested after witnesses said he fled to a Super Lodge.

Police identified the man as 28-year-old Joshua Lewis and say he’s been charged with carjacking and robbery, among other charges.
