| Friday, Sept. 5, 2008

An Indiana County man was charged with the armed robbery of the Kwik-Fill gas station in Center Township, state police at Indiana reported.

Joshua Duffy, 22, of Josephine also was charged with terroristic threats, theft by unlawful taking and receiving stolen property.

Police said Duffy arrived at the station before 6:30 a.m., waited until the store was clear of patrons, then entered with a hunting mask and sunglasses.

When a clerk questioned his demand for money, Duffy allegedly pointed a black gun at her. She relented and gave him the money, police said.

Duffy was found at a residence in Black Lick Township, police said.

He is being held on $15,000 bond in Indiana County Prison while awaiting a Sept. 23 preliminary hearing.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
