A man has been arrested following an armed robbery at a gas station in Richmond Heights on Tuesday.

The incident took place at a Mobil on the Run gas station at 2120 South Brentwood Boulevard.

Employees of the gas station said around noon a man entered the business and showed a gun to the manager before stealing liquor and leaving.  The man did not take any money.

According to the police, the suspect fled to a residence in Richmond Heights at 1121 Buck Avenue following the robbery.

The man was taken into police custody and arrested shortly after.

A neighbor of the residence told News 4 that the home the suspect entered was unoccupied at the time, and changed clothes in an attempt to confuse police.  Authorities have not confirmed this.

The suspect's identity has not yet been released.
