West Kelowna man arrested following armed robbery

A man is facing charges after police say he robbed a West Kelowna gas station with a knife. 

It happened on Monday, May 22, at 1:20am at the Shell Gas Station on Dobbin Road. 

RCMP say the 43-year-old West Kelowna man entered the gas station, produced a knife, and demanded money before before fleeing on foot with an undisclosed amount of the cash. 

An officer later located the man within blocks of the gas station and took him into custody.

The lone store clerk was not injured in the incident.
