LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man wanted in connection with a robbery at a Dollar General store in Jeffersonville, Indiana, has been apprehended.

According to a news release from the Jeffersonville Police Department, 17-year-old Isaac Lukes turned himself in early Wednesday morning at a location that is not being disclosed.

"The Jeffersonville Police Department would like to extend its gratitude to the Lukes family, friends, and the community for their assistance in the apprehension of Lukes," the news release states.

The Dollar General at 5414 State Road 62 in Jeffersonville was robbed on the night of Oct. 17.

Police say that three female employees told them that an unidentified male forced them into the back of the store at gunpoint while they were trying to leave after closing the store. According to the news release, the man held the three employees inside the store against their will for about 30 minutes before ordering them into a room and leaving the scene.

Police say he got away with an undisclosed amount of cash and merchandise.

The Jeffersonville Police Department eventually identified Lukes as the suspect. A warrant was issued for his arrest on charges of Armed Robbery and Criminal Confinement. That warrant was served upon his arrest.

Anyone with any information on the robbery is asked to call the Jeffersonville Police Department Detective Division at (812) 285-6535.
