State police in Belle Vernon have arrested a suspect in the robbery of a Fayette County convenience store Sunday.

Frank B. Rafitz Jr., 51, of Grindstone is being held in the county prison in lieu of $50,000 bond.

Police allege in an arrest warrant that Rafitz entered the Sweet Pea's Food Mart along Route 40 in Redstone Township about 8:50 p.m., threw a 59-year-old male clerk to the ground and threatened a 23-year-old female clerk.

Police said Rafitz demanded the female clerk open the register and fled with an undetermined amount of cash.
