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.

Seattle police are searching for three men who robbed a Gold & Silver Traders shop in the 600 block of South Jackson Street around 12:45 p.m. today, said police spokesman Jeff Kappel.
One of the robbers was armed, said Kappel.
In the midst of the robbery, the robbers saw police officers across the street and thought they were responding to the holdup, a witness told police. However, the officers were not aware of what was going on inside the store.
When the officers were no longer in sight, the robbers tied up the owner and took off. The owner then set off the store’s alarm.
Witnesses reported seeing the three men change their clothing in a nearby alley. The robbers were last seen heading north on Sixth Avenue and then running through Hing Hay Park. Officers have recovered the discarded garments, Kappel said.
Gold & Silver Traders is a family-owned business with six locations in the Puget Sound region where customers can sell unwanted jewelry and precious metals, according to its website.
