Police catch suspect in gas station robbery

Posted By on Wed, Sep 10, 2014 at 10:47 AM

Little Rock police captured a suspect in the robbery of a Valero station at 10501 Stagecoach Road about 5:25 a.m. this morning.

The store clerk said a man dressed in black and wearing a white face mask robbed him at knifepoint and fled with money from the register in a white bag. A customer who drove up saw the man running toward apartments nearby and a police officer who responded went looking for him. He told the suspect to stop and ordered him to his patrol car. He complied. The store clerk later identified him as the robbery suspect. In a subsequent search, police found black gloves and clothing and the white bag from the store, but not a knife. They found money in the suspect's shoes. Diavone Torrence, 18, was charged with robbery.
