ATLANTIC CITY — A woman who saw an older man walking down the street with pizza decided to take it from him rather than get her own, police say.

According to city police, 24-year-old Michelle Brown knocked a 60-year-old man to the ground before taking his pizza early Tuesday morning. The man suffered a head injury and was taken to AtlantiCare Regional Medical Center.

Police say witnesses were able to give responding officers a description of the woman and the direction she went. Less than half an hour after the robbery, K-9 officer Marinela Pali found Brown near the area of Georgia and Pacific avenues.

Brown has been charged with robbery and was being held at the Atlantic County Justice Facility.
