San Jacinto police officers arrested a 48-year-old man Friday in connection with a robbery at a local cell phone store that took place two days prior, a Sheriff's official reported.

Keenan Clark allegedly robbed the store, located in the 1200 block of North State Street in San Jacinto, shortly before 9:30 a.m. on April 2, according to a Riverside County Sheriff's report.

A clerk at the store alleged that a black adult male who was 5 feet, 8 inches tall waited for other store customers to leave before pulling out a handgun and requesting that the clerk fill a bag with cell phones and computer tablets, Sgt. Wallace Clear said.

a golf style cap, tan shirt, black leather jacket, dark jeans, and dark boots and was between the ages of 40 and 50, according to Clear.

Clear said the clerk complied with the man's request, filling his bag with various technological devices.

Two days later a store shopper recognized the suspect in the same parking lot and alerted the authorities. The authorities then located Clark, who matched the clerk's description of the suspect, and detained him. Once a positive identification was made, Clark was arrested and booked at Larry Smith Correctional Facility in Banning, according to Clear.

Anyone who may have information about the robbery is encouraged to contact the San Jacinto Police Department at (951) 654-2702.
