Police have arrested a 24-year-old man accused of robbing a gas station in Newington and telling the clerk he had a gun.
Michael Robinson, of New Britain, has been charged with first-degree robbery and sixth-degree larceny.
Police said he entered the Valero gas station at 194 Kelsey Street in Newington around 5 a.m. Sunday, told the clerk he had a gun and demanded money.
The clerk handed over an unknown amount of cash. No one was hurt.
Police said Robinson did not display a weapon.
He ran out of the store and headed westbound toward New Britain, according to police. A responding officer spotted him walking nearby and took him into custody.
Robinson was held on $100,000 bond and was due in court Wednesday.
It's not clear if he has an attorney.
