CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Police believe one arrest solved two robbery cases in Charlotte.

Officers arrested Patrick Simpson in Chester County.

Investigators said he held up a 61-year-old woman at gunpoint last month outside of a YMCA on Beatties Ford Road in north Charlotte.

She wasn't hurt, but they said he took off with her iPhone.

Police also connected him to a robbery of a pizza deliveryman in northwest Charlotte last month.

The Papa John's driver pulled up to a vacant home on Northwood Drive.

Investigators believe Simpson was one of the people who approached the driver and fired a shot.

The driver wasn't hurt.
