An Akron man arrested after robbing a BP gas station on Monday night.

The suspect entered the BP on Grant Street around 6 p.m. with his hand under his shirt, as if he had a gun, and demanded money.

One clerk told the suspect he had to walk to the back of the store near the coolers to get the money. The clerk then pushed the store panic alarm to notify police. The suspect fled the store without getting anything.

Officers arrested Troy L. Stevens, 37. He was charged with robbery and possession of drug paraphernalia. Officers found a crack pipe and chore boy in his pocket.
