There, two Trotwood women said a man snatched a purse with flowers on it, containing items including a Social Security card and a knife with a bone-colored handle, according to the report.

The robber did not use a weapon, but force or a threat was involved for it to be a felony, the report shows.

Daniels is scheduled to appear Monday in Dayton Municipal Court.
