Man accused of robbing 83-year-old arrested

(WMC-TV) - A Memphis man is in jail and facing charges for robbing an 83-year-old woman in her own driveway as she was returning home from church.

Courtney Anderson, 30, is locked up at 201 Poplar on $250,000 bond. He is charged with one count of aggravated robbery.

Police said Anderson put a gun to Mary Hall's face and demanded her purse and jewelry. Reportedly, he then told her "B****, if you look at me one more time I will kill you".
