ERIE, Pa. - After being robbed of his jacket, cellphone, keys, and $300, a Pennsylvania man was left with the odd feeling that his assailants looked familiar. Police say that is because they went to school together about 15 years ago.

Erie police arrested Anthony Williams, 30, Monday on charges of robbery, terroristic threats, and simple assault. The other suspect has not been found.

They say Williams was one of two men who accosted the victim outside a convenience store Oct. 17.

Police say the victim recognized Williams because they both attended Central Career and Technical School in the mid-1990s. The victim brought old yearbooks to the police station and identified a newer picture of Williams from a photo lineup.
