Police have arrested two teens in connection with an armed robbery of a grocery store in Coeur d’Alene on Saturday.

Vincent Kyle Juarez, 18, of Post Falls and a 17-year-old girl were arrested without incident, a Coeur d’Alene Police Department news release said. Juarez had an outstanding warrant for an unrelated matter and was booked into the Kootenai County Jail on one count of robbery and the warrant.

The robbery occurred at about 8 p.m. Saturday when an armed man wearing a hoodie and covering his face with a bandana, who was later identified as Juarez, entered Jordan’s Grocery at 1036 N. 15th St., a police news release states. He pointed what appeared to be a black semi-automatic handgun at the store clerk and demanded money.

After obtaining cash from the register, he fled outside, according to the release. Information leading to Juarez’s and the female’s arrest was obtained through tips provided by residents in both Coeur d’Alene and Post Falls to the Coeur d’Alene Police Department, the release states.

The juvenile female, also from Post Falls, was booked into the Kootenai County Juvenile Detention Center and faces one count of robbery.
