GRAND FORKS, N.D. — Grand Forks police have arrested a suspect in an attempted robbery at a convenience store.

Authorities say the 22-year-old man entered a Cenex store about 3:45 p.m. Thursday and demanded money. He fled when the clerk refused, and employees followed him until officers arrived and took him into custody a few blocks away.

Police say store employees believe the man had a weapon, but that wasn’t immediately verified.
