2 arrested after citizens witness burglary

Two burglary suspects were arrested early this morning after citizens witnessed a break-in at an east Spokane convenience store.

Officers located Carl J. Biamond 18, and Jelemeto B. Akilang, 20, near North Magnolia Street and East Tilsley Place after citizens observed two men breaking into the Mission Food Mart, 1905 E. Mission Ave., and called police.

Biamond was bleeding from a 3- to 4-inch cut on his inner thigh near his groin when police arrested him, according to the Spokane Police Department.

Police say Biamond claimed to have been robbed and stabbed earlier that night, but police believe he cut himself while through broken glass at the store. Police treated his wounds with a clotting agent and requested medical attention.

Biamond and Akilang were booked into Spokane County Jail for second-degree burglary.
