DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN — Police have arrested a man they say robbed a woman in a Brooklyn subway station earlier in August.

Keith Clark, a 59-year-old man from Brooklyn, was arrested Tuesday and is facing charges including robbery and criminal possession of stolen property, police said.

It was around 8:45 p.m. when the 53-year-old woman was passing through the turnstile at the Nevins Street subway station on Flatbush Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn on August 5th. An unidentified man approached her from behind, grabbing her necklace and pulling the victim by the neck, police said.

The man proceeded to steal the woman’s necklace and one of her bracelets before throwing her to the ground and fleeing the scene, authorities said.

The victim sustained bruising and pain but refused medical attention, police said.
