Windsor Police have one person in custody after a late night robbery Tuesday and a weekend robbery that the same suspect may have been involved in.

Police say that a 26-year-old masked male entered the Maple Leaf Gas Bar located at 3511 Wyandotte Street East around 11pm.  He produced a knife and demanded cigarettes and cash.

He fled the scene but was tracked down by the police K9 unit and was arrested.
