Three men have been arrested in connection with a robbery of an illegal gaming house in Scarborough.

On Oct. 29, two masked men entered the house carrying a .38 calibre revolver and a 12 gauge shotgun, police say.

The men reportedly took an employee and demanded cash. A confrontation occurred between the robbers and patrons. A patron was able to subdue one of the men and hold him until police arrived.
