Woman with baby robbed

A man robbed a woman while she walked on Forest Street carrying an 8-month-old baby. Rutland police said neither the woman nor the baby was injured. The woman said she handed over $30 cash after he told her he had a knife, although the man never showed her the knife. Following the report, a half dozen police officers circled the neighborhood and the Forest Park apartment complex searching for a suspect. Officers questioned a man who fit the description on Porter Place. Police did arrest a man for marijuana possession, but he was not charged in connection with the robbery.
