WAITE PARK, Minn. (KNSI) - A man is in custody after police say he threatened and robbed two people in a Waite Park parking lot.

Police Chief Dave Bentrud says the department was alerted to a robbery in progress on Tuesday around 7:30 p.m. in the parking lot close to 100 2nd Street South.

The man allegedly approached two women as they were getting into their car, pulled a knife and stole items from the car. He then fled on foot.

A Waite Park officer near the scene at the itme was able to locate the man using a description from the women. He is named as 21 year-old Seth Crawford of St. Cloud.

Crawford was taken to Stearns County Jail and booked on charges of Robbery and 2nd Degree Assault.

Bentrud says, as the holiday shopping season ramps up, incidents such as this should serve as a reminder to all to pay special attention to what's going on around them, and report any suspicious activity.
