Armed robbery suspect nabbed

A man was arrested after police said he robbed a Greenwood gas station at gunpoint and forced an employee to go outside, lie on the ground and count to 30.

Joshua L. Allen, 28, Indianapolis, was arrested on a charge of robbery. Police found Allen after a man who was with him Friday night told investigators Allen came back to the vehicle, pointed a gun at the driver and told him to drive away or he would set the gas station on fire, according to a Greenwood Police Department report.

About 11 p.m., police were called to Speedway, at 1291 Madison Ave., after the gas station clerk reported being robbed at gunpoint.
