The Turlock Police Department arrested on man Friday night suspected of robbing a Turlock convenience store with a bat.
The police department received a call at 6:53 p.m. Friday reporting a robbery had happened about 10 minutes prior at the AM/PM store at 4700 N. Golden State Boulevard, said Turlock Police spokesman Sgt. Mike Parmley.
The victim said a white male adult entered the store wearing a mask and a black shirt and blue jeans holding a small black bat.
The suspect demanded money from the register and the victim complied. The suspect then fled the store.
Additional officers responded to the scene and began checking the area. A man matching the description of the suspect was located at N. Golden State Boulevard and Christoffersen Parkway and he was detained.
The man identified himself as Trevor Bergerhouse, 35, of Antioch.
“Upon review of video surveillance, the responsible male who entered the business was wearing a black shirt, black shoes, blue jeans, a black hat with a red bill, a red bandana around his neck, and an Ironman mask,” Parmley said. “The clothing description matched that of Bergerhouse and he was in possession of large amount of various denominations of cash.”
Bergerhouse was arrested on suspicion of robbery and booked into Stanislaus County Jail.
