BOSTON (WHDH) - A man was arrested near the Andrew Square T station Thursday evening after he allegedly stole a person's cellphone.

Transit Police said they responded to the Red Line at around 7:00 p.m. and a victim stated that while he was walking through the lobby, a male came up behind him, snatched the phone and some money out of his hand and fled.

The victim pursued the male out of the station, but was unable to catch up. He gave a description of the suspect to police, who later spotted the suspect on the corner of Gavin and Logan Way.

Daniel Smith, 26, of South Boston was arrested for unarmed robbery. He is expected to be arraigned in South Boston District Court on Friday.
