GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville County deputies said a shoplifting at a grocery stored turned into an armed robbery after a knife was pulled.

Lt. Tim Ridgeway said two men wearing hoodies were spotted shoplifting items from Sav-A-Lot on Monday night.

The manager confronted them in the parking lot and the men pulled a knife, Ridgeway said.

The shoplifters then ran and a K-9 unit tracked them into a wooded area nearby where they were arrested, Ridgeway said.

He said one of the men was bitten by a K-9, but no other injuries were reported.
