Police make arrest in New York restaurant robberies
NEW YORK (WABC) -- Police have made an arrest in a string of armed robberies in Brooklyn and Manhattan .
An anonymous crime stoppers tip led investigators to 47-year-old Robert Coston of Brooklyn.
He's charged with first-degree robbery for the armed hold-ups of at least 10 ice cream shops and Subway restaurants in Brooklyn since mid-October.
Charges are pending for another armed robbery, at a movie theater on Manhattan's Upper East Side earlier this month.
