A woman was choked and robbed early Sunday evening on the 500 block of Gilman Street by a homeless man she had hired to help her move, police said.
The woman picked up two transients at People’s Park earlier in the day to assist with her move. When she was bringing one man back to the park, she noticed that her camcorder was missing, police said. When she confronted the transient, he began choking her and stole her money. He fled the scene on foot.
Police later arrested the man and returned the stolen property.
