A 21-year-old man has been arrested in connection with an attempted robbery that was stopped by workers last week, officials announced.
The incident occurred just before 11 a.m. Dec. 14 when one of two suspects pulled out a knife and lunged at Jean Boujekian, owner of Vana Watch and Jewelry at Mission Street and Fremont Avenue.
Boujekian blocked the knife and fought off the would-be robber, and his nephew took out a gun from behind the counter and pointed it at the attacker, surveillance video released by the South Pasadena Police Department showed.
The suspects got away in a car described by police as a green 2006 Chevy Malibu 4-door, with the California license plate number 5YAC399.
Omar Teriq Bradley, 21, of Compton, was arrested Tuesday after being found driving the suspect vehicle, police said.
It is unclear what Bradley’s role was during the heist. The other man involved in the incident remains outstanding.
He was booked on suspicion of attempted robbery and assault with a deadly weapon.
