Two Dublin teens were arrested for allegedly robbing the Family Deli and Food, located at 3510 Old Santa Rita Road.
Police were called around 3:16 p.m. Monday after one of the teens attempted to buy beer. Police said the clerk declined and then the other teen said he had a gun and walked behind the counter, knocking the clerk to the ground and taking cash from the register. The suspects fled in a white van and a witness wrote down the license plate, according to reports.
An Alameda County Sheriff's Deputy located the van after hearing reports on the Dublin police's radio. One of the suspects was detained and positively identified by the victim, police said.
Investigators learned the name of the second suspect and arrested him at his school in Dublin. Police said he later admitted to being involved in the robbery.
The 16-year-old Dublin teens were charged with one count of robbery apiece.
