A 32-year-old man was arrested after police said he robbed an Ewa Beach convenience store with a machete.

The man entered the store about 4:30 p.m. Friday and demanded money from a 24-year-old woman working as the cashier, police said. The man allegedly brandished a machete and took money from the cash register before running away.

Police located the man a short time later on Makule Road and arrested him on suspicion of first-degree robbery and fourth-degree criminal property damage.
