Police said it took a few hours but they caught a man they think is responsible for an armed robbery in Silvis, Illinois.

Police said a man went into the QC Mart at 1440 First Avenue in Silvis just after 5 a.m. Wednesday, May 8, 2013.  The man was reportedly armed with a gun, and he demanded money from the clerk.

The man left on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash.

Police said they arrested 18-year-old Dujor Simpson, of Carbon Cliff, Illinois, about six hours after the robbery.

Police said they planned to file armed robbery and unlawful possession of a weapon by a felon charges against Simpson.

Court records show Simpson was on probation for other felony convictions at the time of the robbery.

Simpson was held in the Rock Island County Jail.
