I've heard the term a number of times, most notably in reference to Michael Brown in Ferguson, MO. He was accused of having stolen from a convenience store by threatening the owner physically but without a weapon. The phrase "strong arm robbery" was tossed around a lot to describe the allegations. A brief googling leads me to believe that, like the states listed above, there's no separate crime called "strong arm robbery" in Missouri, but it would just be charged as a Whatever-Degree robbery.
