Police say they arrested three males, two of them juveniles, after an attempted robbery on the parking lot of the Whole Foods at 10700 N. Rodney Parham Road about 9:15 this morning. Joseph Kelly, 50, said he ran back to the store when the men tried to rob him after asking for money to buy a drink. They were charged additionally with robbing a 65-year-old man and his granddaughter Saturday afternoon in the Arkansas Valley Park on Arkansas Valley Drive.

Police got a tip about the suspects and arrested them at the Wentwood Valley apartment of one of them, Joseph Wright, 18. His companions were 15 and 16 years old.
