Police arrested two teens Saturday on suspicion of first-degree robbery at a Kalihi store.

Police said a 17-year-old boy was allegedly hiding items in a duffle bag 11 a.m. and was confronted by a 49-year-old store employee.

The boy tried to flee, allegedly using physical force against the man and another store employee, police said.

During a struggle, the boy allegedly pulled out a pocketknife, but the two store employees were able to disarm him, police said.

A second suspect, an 18-year-old Maili man, tried to pull the first employee away from the suspect.

The employees called police, and officers arrested the two on suspicion of first-degree robbery.

Police later released them pending investigation.
