The man wanted for attempting to rob an elderly woman on September 25th is now in custody.


40-year old Fabian Mell Royval was arrested yesterday around 2pm at a residence in the 200 block of North Mississippi Street.  Roval was found hiding in the attic of the home.  He was booked on a warrant for aggravated robbery.
