BEAR, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police have arrested a New Castle man after a cigarette store was robbed at knifepoint.

Officers say the clerk refused to give the man money and activated a panic alarm. Police say the man ran away.

Troopers say witnesses directed them to a nearby motel where the suspect was seen running.

Twenty-two-year-old Matthew Gradwell was arrested and charged with robbery.
