Tulsa police arrested one of two men they believe robbed a homeless man early Friday morning. They recovered some of the man's possessions.

The victim told officers he was sleeping under a Broken Arrow Expressway bridge at Lewis Avenue at about 5 a.m. when two men robbed him at knifepoint. The homeless man walked to a nearby Reasor's where he reported the crime to a deputy working security.

While police responded to the grocery store, an officer spotted a man in the parking lot who matched the description of one of the bandits.

Officers found evidence linking him to the robbery and placed him under arrest.
