AMERICUS, GA (WALB) -

Americus Police responded to an emergency call Thursday morning about 11:00 at the Walmart Super Center.

They say a man snatched the purse of 66 year old Cynthia Yates Holloway, and dragged her across the parking lot with a car.

She was taken to the hospital for treatment of her injuries.

Then about 24 hours later, APD arrested 20 year old Alton Montel Dodson, who lives on Lonnie Lane in Americus.

He is in jail and is being charged with robbery, aggravated battery on a person 65 or older, and aggravated assault use of a dangerous weapon, a vehicle.

We are checking on Ms. Holloway's condition.
