TULSA -- Two people have been arrested in connection with multiple strong-armed robberies.

On Tuesday, police contacted Joseph Calzini, 21, in the 1100 block of South Memorial Drive in connection with the robberies.

Police said Calzini stole property from two elderly women in two different occurrences by using bodily force. Police said he scouted out the locations for the victims and followed them into parking lots.

Police said Summer Tarpley, 22, helped Calzini as the getaway driver in the robberies.

In one instance in the 4400 block of South Sheridan Road, Calzini stolen a woman's purse and punched her in the face multiple times, according to police.

In another instance, police said in the 4700 block of East 21st Street, he stole a woman's purse off her shoulder.

In the third case in the 3200 block of South Sheridan, which was at a business, police said Calzini stole money from a clerk by pulling her across the counter.

Calzini and Tarpley were arrested on three counts of robbery by force or fear and are each being held on a $150,000 bail. Police said Calzini also had warrants in Rogers County.
