FARGO, N.D. — Police say a customer in a Fargo convenience store foiled an armed robbery.

Authorities say the customer confronted a rifle-toting masked man who entered a Tesoro store about 8:30 a.m. Sunday and was able to grab the gun.

The 18-year-old suspect fled the store on foot but was arrested a few hours later.

The customer suffered a few minor scrapes in the scuffle.
