A Chicago man who was arrested and charged with armed robbery Friday after two men robbed a south suburban grocery store at gunpoint Thursday is being held on a $350,000 bond.

Police responded to an alarm about 12:30 a.m. Thursday at Mitchell's Foods at 18202 Torrence Ave. in Lansing. The clerk told officers two men -- one of them armed with a handgun -- entered the store and demanded money from the register, according to a statement from the Village of Lansing.

The clerk was taken to a hospital and treated for non-life-threatening injuries, the statement said.

The suspects -- one of which police later identified as Walker -- were last seen running out of the store, the statement said. It is unknown how much money was stolen.

Walker was ordered held on a $350,000 bond Sunday and will next appear in court Wednesday, according to the Cook County Sheriff's office.
