LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) – Two robbers were arrested thanks to two detectives who were in the right place at the right time.

The robbery took place on Tuesday at Broadway Fashions located on 18th Street and Broadway.

When one of the robbers ran out of the door with a gun and cash in hand two Metro homicide detectives happened to be nearby and saw the whole incident.

The robber jumped into a get-away vehicle and took off.

The detectives chased the two men and eventually arrested them.

Detective Mickey Cohn said, "What are the chances that two police officers are sitting right outside the store when that happens? So it was a bad day for him, a good day for us."

Antonio Adams, 20, and Joshua Keaton, 25, are both charged with robbery.

Adams was on shock probation for a prior burglary home invasion.
