PACIFICA -- Two suspects involved in a strong-arm robbery in Pacifica on Wednesday have been arrested, police said.

Gustavo Paludeti, 19, of Belmont, and Nolan Lydon, 19, of Redwood City, were both booked into the San Mateo County Main Jail on felony charges of robbery, conspiracy and burglary.

The two are suspected to be a part of a group of four men who entered an Ace Hardware store at 560 San Pedro Ave. around 5:30 p.m. and stole an undisclosed amount of merchandise, police said.

One suspect pushed an employee to the ground before the group fled in a vehicle, which was later found unoccupied nearby the scene.
