GALLATIN, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 19-year-old who was wanted by Gallatin police for allegedly robbing an elderly man in a wheelchair last month has been taken into custody.

The robbery happened on Sept. 25 while Bob Oldham was sitting on his front porch.

Police say Isiah Bell and another man, now identified as Jordan Davis, jumped on the porch and took $150 Oldham’s family had just given him.

“I was counting my money,” he previously told News 2. “I had money lying on my lap where I’d been counting it and he jumped and grabbed it.”

Oldham suffers from several health issues and is confined to a wheelchair.

Bell remains in custody and Davis has since been arrested.
