Beloit police responded to a report of an armed robbery incident at the Citgo Gas Station at 1888 Shopiere Road in Beloit Monday around 11:12 p.m., according to the release.

Video surveillance from the robbery led to the identification and arrest of Anthony Hill, 48, of Beloit, Friday on charges of armed robbery and on additional charges for a warrant, according to the release.
