NEWARK -

A 20-year-old has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery last month at a Newark convenience store, Newark Public Safety Director Anthony Ambrose announced in a press release Monday.

Ambrose said Ken Gunter, 20, was taken into custody Monday without incident.

Authorities said officers responded to Cash Money Mini Market just before 11 a.m. on June 22 on an armed robbery call. An armed man, later identified as Gunter, entered the store, stole cash from the store’s clerks and then fled on foot, investigators said.

Ambrose said detectives developed sufficient evidence to identify Gunter as a suspect and obtained a warrant for his arrest.

He is charged with robbery, unlawful possession of a weapon and possession of a weapon for an unlawful purpose.
