IOWA CITY (KWWL)-- A surveillance check by the Iowa City Police Department's Street Crimes Action Team (SCAT) had police in the right place at the right time.

Police say 29-year-old Ahkinea Cox and 26-year-old Frederick Reid were attempting to rob Gasby's convenience store in the 1300 block of South Gilbert Street in Iowa City shortly after 10 Sunday night.

One of the them had a knife.

An officer then entered the store and confronted the men. While arresting one of the men, the other one attempted to leave, but was caught by police.  

No one was injured. Both face several charges.
