ELKTON — A man accused of robbing a Glasgow, Del., gas station at knifepoint is behind bars after being apprehended in Elkton, police said.

The incident happened just before 3 a.m. Aug. 7 at the Shell station at the corner of Pulaski Highway and Glasgow Avenue, near Peoples Plaza, according to Senior Cpl. Jason Hatchell, a spokesman for Delaware State Police.

The robber confronted an employee at the sales counter, displayed a knife and demanded cash. The employee complied, and the robber ran out of the store and fled in a white sedan.

Detectives identified 29-year-old Bradley Marshall, of Newark, Del., as a suspect through “investigative means,” Hatchell said, without elaborating.

Officers from the Elkton Police Department apprehended Marshall on Aug. 26. The following day, he was extradited back to Delaware and charged with first-degree robbery and possession of a deadly weapon during the commission of a felony. He was jailed after failing to post $50,000 secured bond.
