Syracuse, N.Y. - A transient man was arrested Sunday for robbing a woman in broad daylight in the Price Chopper parking lot.
Darren Rinaldi, 43
Syracuse Police say that Darren Rinaldi punched a woman in the head, and threw her to the ground as she was loading groceries into her car. As Rinaldi began to rummage through the woman's purse she began fighting back until someone else in the parking lot stepped in and forced Rinaldi to the ground and held him down until police arrived.
Rinaldi, who is staying at the Catholic Charities Men's Shelter, is charged with felony robbery. He is being held at the Justice Center until bail is set during his arraignment. He is expected to be arraigned this morning.
