The incident took place in southern Italy's Modugno town, near the coastal city of Bari.
The Indian was arrested after witnesses told police they saw him fleeing down a street after Thursday's attack.
Police returned to the Moroccan the 200 euros allegedly found in the Indian's pocket.
The Moroccan was taken to a hospital where doctors diagnosed a fractured ankle.
