ATLANTA -- Authorities say they've made an arrest in the case of a woman who says she used her feet to tap out a computer message to her boyfriend asking him to call for help after she was robbed and bound.

Police say they have charged Dontavius Jackson with armed robbery, aggravated assault, false imprisonment, burglary and other offenses in connection with the case. Authorities say they caught up with the 17-year-old during a traffic stop Wednesday. He was taken to jail on an outstanding probation violation warrant and was identified in the other case through a lineup.

The victim, Amy Windom, 39, told police the robber entered her home early Tuesday and bound her to her bed. She persuaded him not to steal her laptop and later used her toes to tap out a help message on the device.
