FALMOUTH - Falmouth police arrested an armed robbery suspect early Thursday--two hours after he is alleged to have robbed an East Falmouth store.  According to a Falmouth police release, a clerk at Kenyon's Market called 911 at 10:50 p.m. Wednesday night to report an armed robbery.

According to the clerk, a masked man in a hooded sweatshirt entered the store brandishing a large kitchen knife. Three women were locked in the store with the suspect as he took the cash from two registers and two safes, police said.

The suspect reportedly fled on foot at which time, a store clerk was able to call police.

Falmouth officers arrived at the store and with a Barnstable County Sheriff's Office K9 unit, tracked the suspect, 24-year-old Jonathan Nunez to his home on Sao Paulo Drive in East Falmouth, police said.
