CARLISLE, Pa. (WHTM) -

Police said they arrested a man who pulled out a machete during the robbery of a Carlisle store after someone recognized him from a store security photograph.

Ronald Wynn, 44, of 110 W. High Street, was taken into custody at his apartment Tuesday, borough police said.

Wynn was charged with robbery and simple assault in the holdup of the Super 7 store in the 300 block of N. Hanover Street Monday night.

He told officers he didn't "remember a thing" about the previous night, police said.

A store security camera had photographed the robber during the incident, when he was wearing his sweatshirt turned inside-out and the hood partially covering his face, but also about an hour earlier while the hood was down, according to police.

Investigators said he was likely surveying the store before committing the robbery.

Both photographs were released to news media so that someone might identify the suspect. Police said someone did recognize Wynn as a former resident of the Carlisle Cares shelter.

He was sent to Cumberland County Prison on $50,000 bail.
