One man is in custody and police are searching for his alleged accomplice after an armed robbery attempt late Friday night on St-Denis Street, in the Plateau Mont-Royal borough.

Police say they received a call from an employee at the Café Céramik just after midnight, who reported the store was being robbed.

As officers arrived on the scene, they saw two suspects flee through a back door.

One of the suspects broke into a nearby apartment on Drolet Street, injuring its resident.

Police caught up with that suspect minutes later and arrested him.
