UPDATE 9:20 A.M. WEDNESDAY: Fergus Falls Police say the suspect in the armed robbery at Shopko is a 14-year-old white male from Fergus Falls. 

Fergus Falls, MN (WDAY TV)-A man is in custody after an armed robbery at Shopko in Fergus Falls.

Fergus Falls Police Sgt. Connor West says that at around 4:30 a man showed a knife and demanded money at the 226 E Lincoln Ave. store.

He took off on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

But because a large amount of officers and Otter Tail County deputies happened to be nearby on a different call, they were able to canvas the area and find him a block away just six minutes later.

Sgt. Connor West/Fergus Falls Police: "It was great teamwork between the law enforcement officers and the general public in giving us the information so we could follow up and locate him a timely manner."

Police say they are interviewing him and witnesses.

Nobody was hurt during the robbery.
