MANCHESTER, N.H. (WHDH) - Police arrested a New Hampshire man who they say brandished a gun during an armed robbery in Manchester, New Hampshire on Tuesday evening.

Officers responding to a reported armed robbery at Lake Ave. Food Mart on Lake Avenue around 7:30 a.m. met with an employee who said a man wearing a white hoodie entered the store and displayed a handgun in his waistband before demanding cash and then taking off on foot, according to Manchester police.

Soon after this was reported, an officer spotted a man matching the suspect description trying to conceal himself in a driveway on Spruce Street, police said.

The suspect was identified as 29-year-old Victor Alvarado Vega, of Manchester.

He is slated to be arraigned in Hillsborough Superior Court on an armed robbery charge.
