Police arrested an 18-year-old Puna man Wednesday after he allegedly threatened workers at a Pahoa convenience store with knives because they wouldn’t let him use their telephone.

Police said Cordell Studley of Pahoa walked into the 7-Eleven store at around 5 p.m. and used a telephone without permission.

When the clerks wouldn’t let him use it a second time, he allegedly brandished two knives and threatened them.

Police arriving at the scene located Studley and arrested him.

Studley was later charged with two counts of terroristic threatening. His bail was set at $4,000.

No one was injured in the incident.
