Boston Police report arresting James Graham, 55, after he allegedly showed a clerk a knife and then grabbed a fistful of cash out of the register around 4:30 p.m. yesterday at the 7-Eleven next to the State Street entrance to the Aquarium T stop.
Police say officers found Graham a couple blocks away, still clutching the cash in one hand - and a closed folding knife in the other.
The male refused all lawful commands, continuing to grasp the knife even as officers attempted to place him in handcuffs. As the male continued to resist, a struggle ensued during which the male finally dropped the knife and officers were able to place him into custody.
Graham was charged with armed robbery, assault by means of a dangerous weapon, unlawful possession of a dangerous weapon and resisting arrest, police say.
