(Fargo, ND) -- A man is behind bars after attempting to rob a gas station in Downtown Fargo.

The Fargo Police Department tells WDAY Radio that officers were called to the Cenex Gas Station in the 300 block of Main Avenue just after 1 p.m. Saturday for reports of a robbery.

The clerk officers spoke to reported that a man entered the store, told the clerk he was going to rob the store and said to call the police. That's when the clerk left the store and called Fargo PD.

Upon arrival, officers surrounded the property and detained the suspect, who exited the property with cash and receipts on his person.

The suspect, identified as 33-year-old Kashif Grant, was arrested for Class C felony theft.

He is currently being held at the Cass County Jail.
