WARNER ROBINS -- A a Warner Robins man accused of robbing an 83-year-old resident Friday has been arrested and is being held in the Bibb County jail.

Charles Toliver, 47, of a Knodishall Drive address, is accused of an 11:15 a.m. robbery at a home in the 200 block of Brady Drive, said Houston County sheriff’s Lt. Dave Carrick. The resident was not injured.

The resident allowed Toliver into his home because he knew him, according to sheriff’s report. He told a sheriff’s deputy that Toliver immediately started asking him for money.

“When he would not give Mr. Toliver the money, he became aggressive by walking very close to him and still asking for money,” the report said.

The resident was concerned because Toliver allegedly took money from him twice before but he failed to report it to authorities, according to the report.

When the resident turned to get Toliver some water at his request, Toliver allegedly grabbed him from behind and took $212 from his front right pocket.

Toliver then put $12 on a table and allegedly left with the $200, the report said.

Toliver’s was taken into custody about 6:15 p.m. Monday, charged with robbery by force in a robbery in Macon, confirmed Jami Gaudet, public information officer for Warner Robins police.
