Suspect arrested after robbery at Ypsilanti gas station
Ypsilanti police said they arrested a man suspected of robbing a gas station tonight after a witness followed him as he fled on foot.
About 5:20 p.m., a man entered the Boggs gas station convenience store in the 400 block of North Prospect Road and passed a note that demanded money and implied that he had a gun, a police news release said.
The man left with an undisclosed amount of cash, the release said, as the witness followed. Officers responded and arrested a 37-year-old man, recovering all of the stolen cash. Police said the man admitted to robbing the store. He was taken to the Washtenaw County Jail. Charges are pending.
