A detective took an Endicott robbery suspect into custody moments after the incident was reported this morning.

Authorities say 26-year-old Sean Jefferson of Washington Avenue has been charged with third-degree robbery, a felony.

Investigators say Jefferson is accused of grabbing a wallet from an 85-year-old Endicott man on Washington Avenue near Broad Street.

The robbery was reported just before 10 a.m. today.

Police say Jefferson allegedly asked the other man for money for a bus. When the man opened his wallet, Jefferson is said to have taken it.

A detective responding to the call noticed a man who matched the description of the suspect two blocks from the scene. Jefferson was taken into custody without incident.

Police say the owner of the wallet was not injured.
