OXNARD, Calif. – Police have arrested a man who is suspected of robbing an Oxnard liquor store at gunpoint last week.

It happened on Wednesday, Dec. 29 at Four Guys Liquor on the 4800 block of South Rose Avenue.

According to police, around 6:15 p.m., officers were dispatched for a report of a suspect who entered the business, brandished a handgun and demanded cash from the register. The employee at the liquor store gave the robber an undisclosed amount of cash. He then fled the scene.
