Seattle police arrested two men Thursday afternoon in connection with the armed robbery of a South Seattle jewelry store on Wednesday, a police report said.
The suspects, two men, ages 19 and 26, were taken into custody at a Safeway grocery in the 9200 block of Rainier Avenue South, the report said. Police found two handguns on the pair when they were arrested.
An employee at the jewelry store, located in the 6400 block of Martin Luther King Jr. Way South, told police two men pulled out handguns and demanded gold jewelry about 11:15 a.m. Wednesday.
The suspects were unable to get into the locked glass jewelry display cases, but they took several pieces from unlocked cases and a couple of trays of costume jewelry before they drove off in a silver van, a police report said.

OTHELLO (AP) — Adams County authorities say they have arrested two men in connection to a drive-by shooting that left a 4-year-old child with a bullet fragment in his head.
Felipe Michael Garza and Cesar Chavez-Serna were arrested Monday night in two different Othello homes, says Adams County Sheriff Doug Barger..
Investigators found the car they believe was used in the drive-by at the same house where Garza was arrested, Barger said. The car was taken to the Washington State Crime Lab to be processed.
The Tri-City Herald reports the child was wounded Friday when he and four family members were in a red Cadillac. A brown car pulled up and fired several rounds from a 9 mm pistol into the car. The family then drove about five blocks to their house while the suspects chased them.
The child was treated at a local hospital and released hours later.

Six people who allegedly operated a major ID-theft ring in King and Snohomish counties have been arrested, and police are looking into another six suspects as well.
The first six were arrested Friday, including one at the Rodeway Inn in Shoreline, where Everett police, along with Secret Service agents, found forged checks, fake IDs, stolen mail, a laminating machine as well as template to make the Washington state seal that goes on IDs.
Michael Suryan, the man arrested at the hotel, has been charged with dozens of counts of fraud, and is being held on $200,000 bail.
At this still-early part of the investigation, he is thought to be the ring’s leader, said Sergeant Ryan Dalberg, spokesman for the Everett Police Department.
So far, Dalberg said, police have identified about 100 victims in King and Snohomish counties, and many others could be uncovered as officers analyze the computers and hard drives seized at the hotel.
Police allege that the suspects stole identification information from mailboxes and cars, as well as stolen purses and backpacks.
The investigation started when Everett police began to see patterns in a number of theft reports. They brought in the Secret Service because they realized the group involved more than just one or two suspects, Dalberg said.
The suspects could face federal charges.
