Crimetracker: Arrest in East Knoxville robbery

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Police say they were flagged down by a Dominos Pizza delivery driver who had told them he had been robbed.

This happened on Friday around 11:23 PM on Cherry Street near Magnolia Avenue in East Knoxville.

The uninjured victim gave officers a description of the suspect. Police then sent out an alert with that information, which matched a man seen by another officer.

Officers say after a long chase by foot, a male juvenile was arrested and charged with armed robbery and evading police.
