ATHENS, Ga., April 7 (UPI) -- Police in Athens, Ga., said they have arrested a man who allegedly robbed a convenience store after filling out a job application at the business.

Demetrius Robinson, 28, was arrested at a friend's apartment Saturday after he allegedly robbed a Golden Pantry convenience store Wednesday, the Athens Banner-Herald reported Monday.

Police said Robinson filled out the job application as a way to inconspicuously remain in the store until he was alone with the clerk. They said he held a steak knife against the female clerk's side and took all of the money out of her register before leaving. However, they said he left the application, which contained his real name and his uncle's phone number.

"It's kind of strange, but, yes, that's what he did," Detective Jeff Clark said.

Clark said Robinson was being held as a suspect in the crime as well as several other armed robberies.
