TROY, N.Y. -- Troy Police quickly took a purse snatching suspect into custody Wednesday and they say he was also wanted for failing to register as a sex offender.

Police say Roger Malloy, 42, robbed an elderly woman on Pawling Avenue just after 1 p.m. and fled in a car waiting nearby. Officers pulled the car over a short time later and chased Malloy on foot when he tried to run.

Malloy has been charged with robbery and resisting arrest and is scheduled to be arraigned Thursday morning. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
