AAP logoAAP 17/12/2016

A 59-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an armed robbery at a Melbourne jewellery store during which a staff member was hit over the head with a firearm.

A balaclava-clad man confronted the male employee inside the Ormond jewellery store in late November and demanded a safe be opened.

When the victim refused he was struck on the head with a firearm before the attacker fled the scene in a black sedan.

Police on Friday raided a Carrum Downs home and charged the 59-year-old with armed robbery and associated offences.

He's been remanded to appear in Melbourne Magistrates' Court at a later date.
