A man armed with a handgun held up an employee at this Boost Mobile store at Hepburn Street and Park Avenue and fled with an undisclosed amount of cash about 7 p.m. Thursday, city police were told. The suspect was described as Black and wearing a navy blue hooded sweatshirt, black pants and green gloves, police said. The clerk was shaken, but otherwise not injured. About 15 minutes after the holdup, officers rushed a few blocks west to High and Maple streets when a possible suspect was spotted, briefly detained and questioned.
