A Columbia man has been arrested in connection with a Saturday night robbery outside a pizza restaurant at Harper's Choice Village Center, court documents said.

Frederick Bruce Neely, 30, of the 5400 block of Cedar Lane, was charged Sunday with robbery, armed robbery, battery and theft. He was being held yesterday on $50,000 bond at the Howard County Detention Center.

According to court documents, a man approached John Edward Quinn at about 10: 05 p.m. Saturday as he left Papa John's Pizza, 5485 Harpers Farm Road, placed an object in Quinn's back and demanded his money.

Quinn gave the robber $16 and threw his car keys away. The man then ordered Quinn to lay on the ground and began walking toward the athletic center, the documents said.

With the aid of a Howard County police dog, a suspect was found in a parking lot at Abbott House, 5495 Cedar Lane.
