Police arrested a man and woman after they say the man pulled a knife on a Broken Arrow Walmart employee late Tuesday.  

Officers said they were called to the store in the 2300 block of Kenosha just before 10 p.m.  

Employees told officers Robert Estrada, 36, and Tiffany Barto, 31, had left the store without paying for almost $240 in merchandise.   When an employee tried to stop them, Estrada pulled a knife and threatened the employee.  

Police found the pair getting on a motorcycle in the parking lot and arrested them.  Officers said the motorcycle turned out to be stolen and the knife and stolen merchandise was found under a SUV parked nearby.  

Robert Estrada was booked into the Tulsa County jail on complaints of assault with dangerous weapon, possession of stolen property and larceny.  Tiffany Barto was booked on complaints of possession of stolen property and larceny.  

Jail records show both have a court appearance set for April 27.
