A robbery at a Milton gas station has led to several charges against a Guelph man.

According to Halton Regional Police reports, a man entered the station at 1515 Main St. E. around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 5.

After selecting some items, the man refused to pay and then went outside and punctured the tires of the car belonging to the station attendant.

The suspect then re-entered the station and this time threatened the attendant with a knife. Eventually the man left the store but not before helping himself to more goods that weren’t paid for.

Police were called to the scene and a short time later they made an arrest.

Although the name of the man charged has not been released, police say they arrested a 29-year-old from Guelph.

He is charged with assault with a weapon, uttering threats, robbery, two counts of mischief under $5,000, theft under $5,000 and failing to comply with probation.
