LITTLE ROCK (KATV) -

A suspect is in custody after a gas station robbery Sunday morning. 

Pulaski County deputies say around 8:30 a man entered a Shell gas station on the 100 block of West Dixon Road with a hooded sweatshirt and bandana covering his face. 

They say he pointed a gun at the store manager and demanded all the money from the register.

The manager complied and told deputies that the suspect fled West on Dixon Road in a burgundy truck.   

Deputies then stopped 48-year old Derrick Dunbar near Interstate 30 and 65th Street.

Dunbar was taken into custody and is facing aggravated robbery and theft of property charges.
