Police arrested a 15-year-old after they allegedly robbed a Royal Farms at gunpoint Wednesday afternoon.
Police were called to the Royal Farms at 2500 Mountain Road around 2:30 p.m. after reports of a robbery. They say a teen walked into the store, showed a handgun, and demanded money.
The clerk complied, and the suspect ran south on Mountain Road. Officers were able to find the 15-year-old while they were canvassing the area.
The teenager tried to run away, but police were able to arrest him.
