(CNS) – Two boys were arrested minutes after robbing a man of his cell phone, watch, wallet and cigarettes at knifepoint in an Alhambra park, a police sergeant said Wednesday.

The robbery took place at Alhambra Park at 500 N. Palm Ave. at 8:29 p.m. Tuesday, said Alhambra police Sgt. Jerry Johnson.

“The two male juveniles approached the victim in the park,” Johnson said. “One of the suspects had a knife and they ordered the man to give them his cigarettes and wallet and to empty his pockets.”

“The man complied and the two juveniles stole his property and fled the scene but were captured a few minutes after the crime was committed,” Johnson added.

The victim was not injured, Johnson said.

The names of the two suspects were not released because they are juveniles, Johnson said.
