An 18-year-old New Haven man was arrested Friday for allegedly stealing more than $2,000 from a woman as she was depositing the money into a Woodbridge bank after hours.
The arrest comes a month to the day from the incident, on Aug. 6, following an investigation by Woodbridge Police.
The suspect, Jas Senior, was charged with second-degree robbery and second-degree larceny.
Police said Senior approached the woman, an employee of a local business, while she was making a night deposit at the Wells Fargo Bank, 260 Amity Road.

After struggling with the victim, Senior fled with more than $2,000, police said.
Utilizing bank surveillance video, detectives identified Senior as the perpetrator, according to police.
Senior was taken into custody at his residence, and was held in lieu of a $30,000 bond.
