Police arrested a man Monday suspected in an April 27 convenience store robbery where a clerk turned the tables on a gunman after she was bound with duct tape and left in a bathroom.
Marc Antoine Stovall, 21, was arrested near Loop 202 and 40th Street in Phoenix, police said.
Police said Stovall called a clerk in April and said he was a trainee who needed to come in and learn how to run the register. He apparently trained at the register and left.
About 10:30 p.m., he returned to the store in the 800 block of South Stapley Drive, held a gun to the clerk's head and forced her into the back room where he bound her in duct tape and left her in a bathroom, blocking the door with a ladder and trash can.
The victim managed to get out of the duct tape and noticed the gunman had left his weapon in a sink. She grabbed the gun and found the gunman behind the counter ringing up a customer. She pointed the gun at the man and he fled the store with $160, according to a report.
Police later learned the man worked the register because a customer came in and recognized him as her neighbor, according to a report. The customer later provided a name and address for Stovall, who admitted his guilt to police after he was tracked down Monday.
He was arrested on suspicion of armed robbery, kidnapping, and burglary.
