A man accused of robbing an Alhambra convenience store has been taken into custody Sunday morning.

It all started shortly after 11 p.m. Saturday when a robbery alarm went off at a 7-Eleven in the 1000 block of Garfield Avenue in Alhambra. Police got a call from a witness who followed the suspect to San Marino.

Officers tracked the robber down in a car near Winston Avenue and Huntington Drive. Authorities say William Bolczak, 42, threatened officers and gestured toward his waistband. Officers opened fire, but the suspect fled on foot.

A search ensued, and Bolczak was eventually apprehended on the campus of San Marino High School at about 6:35 a.m. He is being held on $65,000 bail.
