An Astoria man was arrested late Friday after a robbery the previous evening at Astoria Mini Mart East.

Calvin John Proctor, 29, was booked at Clatsop County Jail on suspicion of robbery, two counts of second-degree possession of stolen property, and violating probation on a previous burglary charge.

A man wearing a white bandanna, white face mask, and sunglasses entered the store on Marine Drive about 8:52 p.m. June 3. He handed the clerk a note demanding money, which was given to him.

A witness in the parking lot recognized the man and watched him run north on 23rd Street toward Commercial Street and then to the Riverwalk. The witness identified Proctor as the robber, according to Astoria Police.

The agency issued bulletins for Proctor and posted information about the robbery on Facebook. He was found shortly before midnight Friday on Coxcomb Road in Astoria.
