HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

A 17-year-old high school senior was arrested for an armed robbery incident at a Dauphin County convenience store.

According to police, Trevor McGarrity of Lockwood Court in Harrisburg entered a convenience store along the 7800 block of Linglestown Road.

Authorities said he was holding what appeared to be an assault rifle at hip level and pointed it at the female clerk, also 17.

The clerk said he was wearing a green hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, a mask and gloves.

According to officials, McGarrity threw a plastic bag on the counter, and when the clerk started putting money in the bag, he said, "Faster!" He also told her to check underneath the drawer.

McGarrity took the bag with the money and left the store. He then walked to his silver Honda Civic down the road and left the scene, said police.

A store employee followed him and saw him take off the mask. The employee also got the car's registration.

Police found the car within an hour. McGarrity was taken into custody by state police and the Lower Paxton Police Department.

A police investigation revealed the assault rifle was an Air Rifle-BB gun resembling an AR-15.

McGarrity was charged as an adult, and his bail was set at $250,000. He was committed to Dauphin County Prison.
