— Henderson police arrested a 19-year-old, already on probation for an earlier robbery, in the armed robbery of JJ's Chick and Fish restaurant late Thursday morning.

An employee told police that a man entered the restaurant, at 1202 E. Andrews Ave., and threatened him with a handgun. The man took an undisclosed amount of money from the cash register and fled behind the business, investigators said.

Police established a perimeter and brought in K-9 units and then got a tip that the robber had been seen jumping a fence near Tripp Street.

After a foot chase, officers arrested Daryl Williams, of Plum Lane. They recovered a handgun and cash.

Williams was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and carrying a concealed weapon.

According to state Department of Correction records, Williams was placed on probation May 21 for a common-law robbery in Vance County in January.
