ST. LOUIS - A man is facing charges for allegedly stealing a cellphone from a collapsed runner who was dying on a St. Louis sidewalk.

The 64-year-old woman collapsed around 1 p.m. Oct. 18 in the city's Soulard neighborhood, police said. Davenport was arrested after surveillance video showed a man getting out of a van, taking the phone, and leaving the woman on the sidewalk.
The woman later died at a hospital. Her name has not been released.
