Police have arrested an armed robbery suspect thanks to a victim’s photo and the public’s help.
Bo Scisney, 20, was taken into custody on an unrelated robbery charge Wednesday evening. Police said they received several tips following media reports of the incident.
Last week, the victim arranged to meet the suspect at the Stonybrook Commons Apartments in the 3000 block of Redskin Drive.
The suspect, who identified himself as Zach, offered to trade his older computer and $600 in exchange for the victim’s newer computer.
Once inside the victim’s vehicle, the suspect pulled out a gun and demanded money, the computer and the victim’s cellphone.
The photo the victim had taken was automatically uploaded to Apple’s iCloud service, allowing him to turn it over to police.
Detectives are now working to investigate any possible connections to other robberies.
