WILTON –A Livermore Falls man wanted by police in connection with an armed robbery was arrested this morning.

Robert Judd, 32, was arrested at St. Mary’s Hospital in Lewiston at 10:15 a.m., after police made a public plea the day before for help catching him, according to Chief Heidi Wilcox.
Judd faces a felony robbery charge tied to the Curve Street robbery Friday night in Wilton. An Auburn police officer arrested him on a warrant for the charge, and he is expected to arrive later today at Franklin County Detention Center in Farmington, where he will be held until his initial court appearance, Wilcox said.
Wilcox was awaiting a police report about the arrest before releasing further details, she said.
Police have already located a Jay man suspected of being involved in the robbery. Investigators made contact with Zachary Givens, 20, shortly after a Curve Street man reported being robbed at gunpoint Friday about 6:30 p.m. Wilcox would not comment about possible charges faced by Givens until the investigation is complete, she said.
A 27-year-old man who lives on Curve Street told police two men robbed him of cash after they jumped out of a late model white Subaru. He said one of the men pointed a handgun at him before striking him on the head with it. The man refused medical treatment.
The man said the pair fled in the Subaru, which was being driven by a woman, and police have since located the vehicle. The woman driving the car has also been located by police who continue to investigate the crime, Wilcox said.
