Police say they have arrested the man wanted for a knifepoint robbery at a store in Torresdale.

James Brock, 33, of the 6500 block of Frankford Avenue will be charged in the theft at Lisa and Charlie's Market at 6017 Torresdale Avenue back on June 14th.

Investigators say it was around 5:15 p.m. that day when Brock came into the store, armed with a knife, and demanded money from the employees.

The workers handed over about $60 in cash and Brock allegedly fled on a black bicycle.

Two weeks later an officer in the 15th District saw a posted photo of Brock and recognized him.

Police say Brock was also identified by the victim.
