Two men were arrested Tuesday morning after trying to rob Mac's Fresh Market in Ridgeland.

18-year-old Denzel Watson and 18-year-old Francesco McKnight Smith both from Jackson were identified by police.

One man tried to grab money out of the cash register while it was open and the other one waited in their getaway car in the parking lot.

The cashier and other staff jumped on the robber and called Ridgeland police.

When the second suspect saw what was happening, he ran inside to help his accomplice but failed. He ran out of the store but was arrested in the parking lot by Ridgeland police.

No weapons were used in this robbery and no one was hurt.

Both men will be charged with strong armed robbery.
