Just after four o'clock Friday afternoon a young man walked into Merle Norman Cosmetics. Witnesses say he appeared to have a gun and demanded money.
Lubbock Police say the man then left the scene with an undetermined amount of cash. This sparked a foot chase with Police. Several officers followed the suspect through several buildings surrounding the shopping complex.
Police caught up with the robbery suspect at the old Barcelona Court Hotel a few minutes later. He was then taken into custody. Police say the suspect was carrying a BB gun.
Police say they will question the suspect about a number of robberies including Monday's robbery of the Santa Moon at 6227 Slide Road.
