While the officer was checking on the car and the driver, Charles Cuffey Jr., 21, approached the officer and said the driver was the same man who had tried to rob him store three days earlier outside Clauss' Liquors in the 600 block of Crain Highway.

Cuffey told the officer he recognized the man as the one who had held a chrome-colored gun to his ribs during the robbery attempt, and that he recognized the Subaru as the getaway car.

The officer arrested the driver.
