A suspect in the attempted robbery of a gas station in Westport on Friday by a man wielding a tire iron has been arrested in Bridgeport, police said today.

Terence Leydon, 43, of Stamford was taken into custody today by Bridgeport and Norwalk detectives in the 3:40 a.m. attempted robbery at the BP gas station, 1510 Post Road East at Maple Avenue South. Police said the suspect fled empty-handed after failing to open or remove the cash register.

Westport police said Leydon was identified as the suspect late Friday night by members of the Stamford Police Department Detective Bureau after viewing the surveillance photo disseminated by Westport.

Detectives were attempting to locate Leydon when he allegedly committed a robbery at gunpoint at a nail salon in Norwalk on Saturday, police said. They said he was also wanted in a Milford hair salon robbery in which a tire iron was also wielded as well as a robbery in Danbury.
