BRIDGEPORT - Bridgeport police say it didn't take them long to arrest the suspect in a gas station robbery this morning.

They say employees of the Shell gas station on Main Street were able to get a good look at the man before he fled in a car.

Detectives later spotted a car that matched the one described by the workers, and store clerks were able to identify the driver.

A woman was in the car with the suspect, but was not arrested, police say.
