Medford Police recently arrested one suspect and are still seeking another in an armed robbery that took place at Fred's Gas Station on Mystic Avenue late last month.

Jesus Carrasquillo, 19, of 889 County St. in New Bedford, was arrested Feb. 7 by police and charged with armed robbery and assault with a dangerous weapon for his alleged role in the robbery.

A second suspect remains at large, according to Medford Police Capt. Kevin Faller. 

Faller said the two suspects entered the shop on Jan. 29 and stole cash after the second suspect allegedly showed a knife and Carrasquillo allegedly used an "aerosol spray" on a shop clerk.

After a description of the suspects was circulated, Faller said help from both Somerville Police and Somerville Housing Authority Police led to the arrest of Carrasquillo.

Faller provided the following description of the suspect still at large: black male, approx 19-20 years old, black jacket, black jeans and a black rag on his head.

A still image from the security camera at the shop is available to the right.

Medford Police can be contacted at 781-391-6404.
