The suspect then took the womanís purse and ran from the scene, after which the woman closed the garage door and immediately called 911. The victim was able to provide officers with a detailed description of both the suspect and his gun.
Frisco police officers were able to set up a perimeter from the information and description provided by the victim.

The victimís purse was found at the same location as well as the weapon thatís believed to have been used. Fisher was charged with aggravated robbery and transported to the Frisco jail.
ďOur victim remained calm during this incident which allowed her to make good mental notes about the suspectís description, said interim Police Chief John Bruce. ďThis was critical to allow patrol offices to quickly locate and apprehend him.Ē
