DANVILLE, Va. (WDBJ7) Danville police have made an arrest in a robbery that coincided with a string of other robberies.

19-year-old Danville resident Saheem Roger Waddell was arrested on Tuesday in connection to a robbery that happened on January 17 at the Piedmont Credit Union parking lot.

A woman told police that she was approached in the parking lot by a man who was wielding a knife. He demanded money, but the woman said she didn't have any. The woman told police that a second man, who was wearing a mask, approached and then both men then ran off.

That was one of several robberies that happened just hours apart. At this time, Waddell is only charged in one.

Waddell is in jail without bond.
