FRISCO - A suspect in an armed robbery was arrested after the victim of the crime was able to calmly relay a description of the suspect in a 911 call.

A mother said she was unloading groceries in the garage of her home with her child when a man approached her, placing a gun to head. The suspect took her purse and fled the scene in the 8500 block of Warren Drive in Frisco.

After the man fled, she walked her daughter into the garage, closed it and made the call to 911.

"I was getting out of my garage, my daughter was standing outside and a guy came up to me and I was talking on the phone and he put a gun to my head and said "Give me your purse now,"' the victim told a dispatcher.

The woman went on to describe the suspect in detail.

A short time later, 28-year-old Dallas Fisher, who matched the description given, was discovered in a field north of the crime and was apprehended by police. Fisher was charged with aggravated robbery.

"Our victim remained calm during this incident, which allowed her to make good mental notes about the suspect's description," said Chief John Bruce, Frisco Police Department, in a statement. "This was critical to allow patrol offices to quickly locate and apprehend him."
