Man arrested after armed robbery at Fredericton business

One man is facing charges in connection with an armed robbery at a north side Fredericton business.

Sgt. Justin LeBlanc of the Fredericton Police Force says the call came in around 2:15 p.m. Saturday.

"A suspect was in possession of a weapon and demanded that staff turn over some property," LeBlanc told our newsroom Sunday morning. "The staff member complied and the suspect left the scene."

LeBlanc said an adult male was arrested about an hour later and is awaiting a court appearance this week.

No one was hurt in the incident, and police did not say where the alleged robbery took place.
