KOIN, Oregon — A few minutes after two women stole a knife from WinCo and demanded money from a cashier, an armed man fled to steal a car, Salem police said.
At around 11:00 am, police said Gilbert Jesus Machuca stole a knife from the Lancaster Drive SE store and used it to rob the cashier. Then the 29-year-old went out to the parking lot and went to up to two women getting into the car.
Officials said Machuka tried to steal the car, but the woman was able to get in and escape by car. Machuka was immediately arrested at a gas station across the street.
