Andre Ellison, 51, was arrested on Wednesday and charged with aggravated robbery.

According to court documents, Tony McAfee arrived at a location on East Rich Street on April 16 in hopes of buying a television.

The couple said that Ellison and two masked suspects beat McAfee and stole his wallet, cell phone and keys.
