Pair arrested, suspected of robbing Clovis Kmart

A Fresno couple were arrested Wednesday on suspicion of robbing a Clovis Kmart store Friday.

Clovis police officers arrested the 37-year-old man and 25-year-old woman at their home on the 300 block of North Fordham.

The pair were caught trying to steal video games Friday, and the man pulled a knife and tried to stab a security guard before the two ran from the store, police said.

Officers said they searched the couple's home and found knives, gang paraphernalia and a methamphetamine pipe.

Police say the woman had been fired from the same Kmart store for shoplifting. The man faces charges of armed robbery and assault with a deadly weapon. The woman was cited for possessing the meth pipe.
