AKRON -- Just before 11 a.m. Saturday, police arrested Daniel Roy Spiegel, 41, of Akron.
He was taken into custody without incident and charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated burglary.
Speigel was wanted in connection with an incident last Wednesday.
It is alleged he knocked on the door of a 96-year-old female in Akron seeking shelter from the cold.
When the woman refused to let Spiegel into her home, he kicked the door, knocked her to the floor and took money from her purse before leaving.
The woman was not seriously injured.
Spiegel was scheduled for an arraignment hearing in Akron Municipal Court Monday.
