Niagara Falls police have one person in custody in connection to an overnight armed robbery at a 7-Eleven.  

Police say the call came in about 1:30 a.m. Wednesday.  They responded to the store at 15th and Pine.

Our crew at the scene saw one person on the ground, surrounded by police and later walked away in handcuffs.

It's unclear what, if any, charges have been filed in this case.

Workers at the store say they were held up at knife point, but police have not said what kind of weapon was used in this robbery.

Niagara Falls police dispatchers said detectives were still on the scene about 90 minutes after the initial call.

It's unclear what was taken and if anything was recovered.
