Cleveland, OH - A 53-year-old man behind bars after a late Thursday night standoff.

Robert Yankovic arrested, but not yet charged, after a robbery at the W. 117th & Clifton Shell Gas Station.

Lakewood police gathered evidence at the crime scene and tracked down the suspect holed up at a home on Clifton Boulevard in Cleveland.

A three-hour standoff ensued after the suspect refused to come out of the residence.

Yankovic finally surrendered peacefully shortly before 11PM.

He is the son of late Polka legend Frankie Yankovic and played the banjo in his father's band for years.
