ROCHESTER, N.H. (AP) — Police say they had no trouble trailing a New Hampshire robbery suspect who left fresh footprints in the snow while making his getaway.

Rochester police say they followed the man's footprints into the woods near a gas station early Wednesday after the clerk reported being robbed and assaulted.

Foster's Daily Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1FO8bTV) police said the man, identified as 22-year-old Zachary Robinson, had items from the store in his possession.

Robinson was to be arraigned Wednesday. It wasn't immediately known if he had a lawyer.

The store clerk was treated for minor injuries.
