The 58-year-old victim had her purse and cellphone taken around 9 a.m. Sunday at Tulare and P streets. Officers arrested Gonzalez nearby. They say he confessed to the crime and showed them where he dumped the stolen items.

The 21-year-old was previously arrested on June 1 for drug and theft charges, but told investigators he was released Sunday morning for time served.
