According to police, Gino Conti, 31, walked into the Shell gas station on Route 30 in Hempfield Township and asked for a box of cigarettes.
When the clerk turned around, police said Conti pulled out a fork and demanded money.
Police said there was no money in the cash register, so Conti grabbed the cigarettes and left.
Police caught up with Conti a short time later. He faces several charges including robbery and simple assault.
No one was hurt when Conti pulled the fork out.
