San Jose police say a suspect is in custody for a string of strong-arm robberies targeting senior citizens of Asian and East Indian descent.

Investigators released surveillance video Monday of a robber caught in the act.

Police say that's 21-year old Lawrence Carter yanking a necklace from a victim's neck.

Carter faces multiple felony counts, including robbery, elderly abuse and assault with a deadly weapon.

Detectives believe carter may be responsible for additional robberies and they're urging other possible victims to come forward.
