RCMP have charged a man after an armed robbery in Eskasoni.

It happened at a business on Shore Road at about 9 p.m. Friday.

Police say no one was injured in the incident.

The suspect ran into the woods.

About an hour later, officers arrested a 34-year-old We’koqma’q man at a residence and found a knife like the one described in the robbery and money.

He was held in custody and is due to face weapons charges in court Monday morning.
