The girl also faces a count of possessing a dangerous weapon while Jonathon Christopher Matthews, 18, faces a count of possessing stolen property under $5,000.

Police said three suspects wearing masks entered the gas station at 5th Avenue and Tabor Boulevard just before 1 a.m. while a fourth remained outside. They demanded cash and struck the lone employee with a blunt instrument.

They fled on foot with a small amount of cash and some cigarettes before police could be called. But several officers were called to the area and by shortly after 1 a.m., the four were found and arrested near an elementary school on Rainbow Drive.
