A man wanted by police for assaulting a woman at a Columbia hospital was arrested on Friday.

Authorities took Dominque Powell, 22, into custody in Centralia.

MU police first responded to University Hospital for a possible robbery around 11:40 a.m. Thursday. 

Investigators say Powell walked into the hospital, demanded money from a female employee and kicked her in the shin before running away.

Officers believe Powell left the area in a vehicle driven by an accomplice.
