We have new information this morning in an attempted armed robbery at a Fargo gas station.
Around midnight, Fargo Police arrested 18-year-old John Holeton. He's facing charges of attempted robbery and posession of a stolen firearm. Nobody was injured from the attempted robbery, but the scary situation was deescalated thanks to one customer. Police said Holeton walked into the Tesoro on 32nd Avenue South near Essentia Health wearing a mask around 8:30 last night. He was stopped by a customer who managed to take the gun away. Police say Holeton ran off, but was arrested about three hours later. He's being held at the Cass County Jail.
