State Police have arrested a suspect in the Monday attempted robbery of a Dover store.

Police say David Penn of Felton pulled a gun on the clerk at Mike's Food Mart on South Governor's Avenue and demanded cash Monday afternoon.

Penn scuffled with the employee, hitting him over the head with his gun at one point before running off empty-handed.

Investigators linked Penn to the crime, and troopers acting on a tip picked him up at the Clearfield Apartments.

Penn's now being held at the Vaughn Correctional Center.
