SELMA, N.C. — Police arrested a man Friday for robbing an elderly person while posing as a police officer.

Investigators said Javon Ellison approached an elderly man, pretended to be an officer with the Selma Police Department, and told the victim he was going to drive him to a town-sponsored event for the elderly.

Instead, investigators said, Ellison drove the victim to a remote part of town and stole his money.
