MAYER, Ariz. -

A 20-year-old man was arrested after he allegedly robbed a convenience store and forced the clerk into a walk-in freezer before fleeing on Tuesday.

Yavapai County Sheriff's Office deputies say a suspect pulled a bandana over his face and demanded money from a clerk at a Circle K store in Mayer.

The suspect allegedly threatened to harm the clerk and then forced the clerk into a freezer. He got away with an unknown amount of money.

On Thursday, deputies stopped a vehicle on Main Street and Highway 69 in Mayer.

A rear seat passenger initially gave a false name, but they later found out his name was Brandon Frye.

Deputies say Frye matched the description of the suspect and saw a tattoo similar to the one in the surveillance photo on his forearm.

Frye allegedly fought with deputies during his arrest, but eventually cooperated.

According to deputies, they found evidence linking Frye to the robbery. He also was illegally possessing prescription medications.

Frye was booked on charges of robbery, kidnapping, threatening/causing physical injury or property damage, theft, aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, resisting arrest, using/threatening physical force and possession or use of a dangerous drug.

He's in custody on a $75,000 bond.

    Timothy Cardinal Dolan gathered religious and city leaders with the focus of how to ease tensions between police and the community in advance of this Saturday's march to protest the death of Eric Garner. Some of the leaders in this group are rarely photographed together, let alone seated at the same table. But they were brought together over concerns about possible protest violence by the cardinal, one of the most powerful figures in the city and who commands respect across the board.
