Police arrested and charged a 15-year-old teen for robbing a student at the University of Maryland last month.

On January 29, a female UMD student said a teen approached her and took her cell phone by physical force near McKeldin Library on McKeldin Mall, then fled toward the Chincoteague building.

Police released a surveillance video image of the attacker.

The teen was arrested Monday and charged with robbery, second degree assault and theft under $1000.
