Police in Jamestown arrested a man they say held up to juveniles Friday night.

Officers were called to Crown and Charles Streets around 6:30 p.m. after two juveniles were robbed. Police had a description of two suspects, and after seeing one possible suspect, an officer pulled over. But as the officer exited the patrol car, the suspect took off on foot.

Jaysen Galarza-Santos was caught after a short chase and was identified by the two juveniles as one of the men who robbed them.

Galarza-Santos was arrested and charged with first degree robbery, first degree attempted robbery, obstructing governmental administration and two counts of endangering the welfare of a child.
