The woman was in her vehicle about 12:16 p.m. Jan. 21 in the 8000 block of Ballard Road when three males in a light-colored SUV pulled up in front of her, police said.

One of the males got out, pointed a gun at the woman and demanded her purse, police said. The woman complied and the suspects fled.

Roloson was arrested Friday at his North Mayfair neighborhood home, police said.
