Windsor Police have arrested a suspect wanted in a convenience store robbery.
Police say it happened around 3am on Monday, June 11, 2018 at 3:00 in the 2600 block of Lauzon Road.
They say that a lone male suspect entered the store, and the clerk and the suspect had a brief conversation. The suspect then removed a small quantity of merchandise from a display and exited the store.
The employee followed the suspect outside of the business and confronted the suspect.
The pair then had a physical confrontation during which time the employee was struck with what is believed to be an edged weapon.
The suspect then fled in a vehicle which was described as being a red four-door SUV bearing a cross-shaped emblem on the front grill. The suspect drove off eastbound from the store parking lot.
The victim was transported to hospital for treatment of his injuries.
Police say that following the releases of the suspect photo on Monday, they received information as to the identity of the wanted male.
The suspect was located around 10:30pm Monday night at a LaSalle residence and arrested the suspect without incident.
Officers also recovered a knife during the investigation.
Police say that due to the fact that the suspect is 16 years old, he cannot be identified under the provisions of the youth criminal justice act.
The male faces a charge of robbery and assault with a weapon.
