Police have made a quick arrest after a convenience store was robbed Tuesday afternoon in the Bloor Street West and Dovercourt Road area.
It’s alleged a boy entered the store, wearing a baseball hat and sunglasses to conceal his identity, and made his way behind the counter while displaying a handgun.
The clerk was robbed and the boy took off, but police later arrested him at his home.
Drugs, a firearm and items taken from the robbery were seized from that address.
The 16 year old, who can’t be named because of his age, is facing charges including armed robbery, disguise with intent and possession of property obtained by crime.
