A Santa Clara man was arrested in Palo Alto Monday afternoon minutes after allegedly robbing a Goodwill store and threatening a security guard with a knife, Palo Alto police Officer Mariana Villaescusa said.
"When (Ramirez) was approached by the security guard at Goodwill, he brandished the knife, and the security guard, for his own safety, backed away," Villaescusa said.
Ramirez then fled the scene in a car, she said. Ramirez was pulled over while driving north on El Camino Real near Ventura Road at 1:44 p.m. and was arrested, Villaescusa said.
There were no injuries during the robbery or the arrest.
