TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

A man suspected of robbing a Tucson cab driver at knife point last month has been arrested. Tucson police say 37-year-old Michael Pitts was wanted on a felony warrant for armed robbery.

Pitt is suspected of flagging down the cab on Jan. 19 and asking for a ride. When the cab arrived at the destination, police say Pitts "put a knife to the cab driver's ribs and demanded money." Police say Pitts made off with an undisclosed amount of cash.

At about 2 a.m. Wednesday, police officers spotted Pitts and he was arrested without incident. He's been booked into the Pima County Jail on suspicion of armed robbery.
