NEWARK, Del. (AP) - Police in Delaware say they’ve arrested a man accused of robbing a gas station earlier this month at knifepoint.
The Newark Police Department said the robbery happened early Jan. 17 at an Exxon station. Police say a man entered the business with a large kitchen knife demanding money. He fled on foot after getting an undisclosed amount of money.
Police said Friday that they used surveillance video and witness interviews to identify 29-year-old John J. Nichols of New Castle as a suspect.
He was taken into custody Friday without incident and charged with first-degree robbery among other counts.
Authorities didn’t make clear if he has an attorney who could speak on his behalf.
