After leaving the store empty handed, police say he entered a vehicle being operated by 27-year-old John Hickey and they both fled the scene.

A witness followed the vehicle and called 911 to report the robbery.

Police say the suspects headed south on the F.E. Everett Turnpike and were apprehended shortly after passing through the Bedford tolls.
