The man accused of helping rob skateboarders on General Meyer Avenue in Algiers can't run anymore.

According to our partners at NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, investigators arrested Joseph Rodriguez Friday morning.

Investigators think Rodriguez is the man who pulled a gun on skateboarders Tuesday. They say that gave Willie Washington time to take the skateboarders' wallets, phones and other property.

NOPD officers arrested Washington Tuesday, shortly after the robbery.
