A would-be robber fled from a convenience store
yesterday afternoon when the owner pulled a gun and ordered him to drop the
items he had taken, police said.
Winston-Salem police arrested Devon Lester
Webster, 41, as he ran down an access ramp from Broad Street to Business 40.
Webster, of 228 Terrace Ave., was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon
and resisting an officer.
He was being held in the Forsyth County Jail
last night with bond set at $25,000.
Police said that a man entered the Fairway One
Stop at 225 S. Broad St. about 2:30. The man got a six-pack of beer, placed it
on the counter and asked store owner Hyeon Sun Jung for credit. Jung refused.
Police said the man then started putting candy and cigars in his pocket, took
out a large knife and demanded money from Jung.
Jung pulled out a gun and told the man to put
down the items and drop the knife, police said. The man dropped the knife and
the items and ran from the store.
A Winston-Salem police officer saw the man
running on the access ramp a few minutes later and arrested him.
