Jason Morgan, a suspect in the September 10 robbery and assault of an 84-year-old man in the Gallery Shopping Mall, is under arrest tonight thanks to an observant customer at Cheers Lounge in Upper Darby. Bob Herdelin says he recognized Morgan from a poster in the bar. He spotted Morgan there today at about 4:00 p.m. and tackled him as he was leaving and held him until police arrived.

U.S. Marshals distributed wanted posters in the area.

Central Detectives confirm Morgan's arrest and say he will be charged with robbery and aggravated assault and transported to Philadelphia sometime tonight.
