A Fall River woman is facing armed robbery charges after her arrest earlier this week.

The owner of the Sunset Hill Variety on Bowen Street told police a woman entered the store on Monday afternoon and demanded money, holding her hand in her pocket and claiming she had a gun.

She walked behind the counter and removed cash from the register before leaving.

Police say the store owner chased the suspect and pinned her to the ground as police arrived.  Police recovered a wrench from her pocket.

35 Year old Tara Ketzler of Fall River was taken into custody and was scheduled for arraignment in Fall River District Court.
