NORWALK - Police say they caught a man accused of mugging a young woman based on information received from a News 12 Connecticut viewer.

Police say Christian Lannacone, 34, robbed a woman trying to rent a movie from a Redbox kiosk at the Stop and Shop on Connecticut Avenue in March.

Detective Alex Tolnay says a tip from a viewer led police to an old mugshot of Lannacone. He says the victim then positively identified him in a lineup and Lannacone was arrested.
