Visalia police arrested Justin Greer, 26, for the crime, but they say his female accomplice got away.
The robbery happened just before 9 p.m. on Saturday at the Save Mart on Noble Avenue near Ben Maddox Way. Police say the suspects pulled a knife on the loss prevention clerks who tried to stop them outside the store. They also pepper-sprayed the victims in their faces.
Authorities caught Greer hiding in a nearby park, and the stolen items were recovered by employees.
