MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis man is scheduled to appear in court on Tuesday after allegedly attacking a woman then reaching into her bra for cash.

Police reports indicate the victim was in the area of Waynoka and Haden Place when Adrian Davis approached her and tried to hit her with his fists. Then the suspect allegedly yanked a Galaxy 8 phone from her hand and then grabbed $1,183 from her bra.

The victim called 911, but didn't wait for police to arrive.

She and her brother reportedly began searching for the suspect and eventually located him at a bus stop near the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library on Poplar Avenue.

The victim told police Davis ran into the library.

Police said they found him hiding on the fourth floor and arrested him for robbery and marijuana possession charges.

Neighbors say police have increased patrols since the crime happened.

The victim told police she'd never met Davis before.

Shelby County court records show he pleaded guilty to a marijuana charge in 2012 and stealing from a school cafeteria in 2011.
