Metro police charged a 19-year-old with aggravated robbery after he allegedly robbed a 56-year-old woman at gunpoint inside her apartment Wednesday.

Police said James Parker Jr. entered the victim's Rio Vista Drive apartment and demanded cash and prescription medication at gunpoint.

The woman complied with Parker's request before he fled the scene on foot.

Officers located the teen a short time later walking on N. Dupont Avenue.

He was taken into police custody and was later identified as the robber.

Police said Parker was in possession of the victim's pain medication at the time of his arrest.

He is being held in lieu of a $65,000 bond.
