Akron Police are looking for a suspect in connection with a robbery and shooting that occurred at Arden Place on the city's east side Monday afternoon.
Police said around noon a 23-year-old man sitting on a porch at a home on Arden Place was robbed, then shot.
The man reported to police that the suspect approached him and demanded his belongings at gunpoint.
He gave the alleged robber his wallet and $300.
