Man Arrested for Alabama Robbery After Calling Cab

MORRIS, Ala. (AP) - Authorities arrested a man they say robbed a
Dollar General store in Morris after he called a taxi to pick him
up.

Authorities tell The Birmingham News they arrested 23-year-old
Marco Tolbert around 11 p.m. Friday.

That's about 13 hours after authorities say Tolbert and another man held up the store and led police on a chase.

Tolbert and 24-year-old Patrick Savannah face charges of first-degree robbery and assault.

Authorities say the pair roughed up the store manager, who was taken to a hospital for observation.

Savannah was arrested when the car the men fled in pulled into a
driveway.

Authorities say Tolber disappeared into a wooded area.

Authorities arrested him after getting a tip he'd called a cab.
