TOOELE — Sheriff's deputies arrested a robbery suspect they say was making a run for the Utah-Nevada border with two young children.

The man is accused of robbing the Top Stop convenience store in Lake Point at gunpoint late Wednesday night. Tooele County sheriff's deputies were watching for the suspect's dark-colored Honda.

About 10 p.m., a sheriff's deputy spotted the suspect entering Wendover. The man was arrested, and a 3-month-old girl and a 19-month-old girl were in the car with him. They were placed in state protective custody until their mother, who lives in Wyoming, could be found.

The man was booked into jail for investigation of robbery, possession of a concealed weapon, possession of a firearm by a felon and possession of a stolen vehicle.
