A man suspected of using a knife to threaten employees at a Juneau store has been arrested.

The Juneau Empire reports 39-year-old Patrick "Biscuit" Kane Jr. was charged Saturday with robbery, felony assault and theft.

Employees of Juneau's Home Depot on May 22 told police they tried to stop a man who left the store with $400 in unpaid merchandise.

Employees struggled with the man and a customer tried to hold the suspect.

The witnesses said the man pulled out a knife, threatened to stab the employees and the customer, ran off and fled in a blue pickup.

Store employees identified a second man who had been with the suspect.

The second man was found with unpaid items underneath his clothing and charged with concealment of merchandise.
