Charleston Police have made an arrest in connection with a robbery Monday night in Kanawha City.
Officers took Troy Allen White, 43, into custody Tuesday evening. He is charged with second degree robbery after police say he robbed Max's Place.
According to the criminal complaint, he sat down briefly then walked to the front door and looked outside. Police say he then turned around and looked at the clerk and stated, "I want you to be nice because I'm going to rob you," and then grabbed the cash register.
The victim told police she could see a large knife in his back pocket and began backing away in fear for her safety. White then allegedly slammed the register until it opened and grabbed the money inside. Police say he fled on foot.
