A thorough Sacramento police officer followed up on a good eyewitness description and netted a strong-arm robbery suspect Thursday.
A couple staying in a motel near East Sacramento was robbed at a store on 30th Street around 7:30 p.m., when the husband was pushed to the ground by an assailant, said Sgt. Andrew Pettit.
The husband gave the responding officer a thorough description, including that the culprit had a "lazy eye."
The officer searched the police system for similar descriptions and came up with a possible suspect.
The victim was able to pick the suspect out of a photo lineup.
When police went to the suspect's address, they found some of the victim's property.
They arrested Terrance McNiel, 35.
