ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) — Aberdeen police have arrested a suspect in the attempted armed robbery of a convenience store.

Authorities tell the American News that a man armed with a gun walked into the South C Store late Monday, went through drawers behind the counter and then fled without stealing anything.

Authorities arrested a 19-year-old suspect Wednesday. The man was not immediately formally charged.
