DECATUR- Two men were arrested Nov. 13 after one allegedly pointed a knife at Walmart employees while stealing from the store. 

Nov. 13, at 3:17 p.m., Central Dispatch received a call for a theft in progress at Walmart, 2800 Spring Ave. SW.
Officers with the Decatur Police Department said they responded to the scene and made contact with the person who called in the incident. They were advised that two suspects left the scene, after one brandished a knife toward employees. 
The caller was able to provide a detailed description of the suspects’ clothing and vehicle.
Officers said the descriptions were broadcast to all officers in an attempt to locate the vehicle. Officer Robbie Willis of the Decatur Police Department’s traffic unit observed the vehicle traveling eastbound on Highway 20.

As he attempted to perform a traffic stop on the vehicle, the driver sped away at a high rate of speed, according to the police report. 
After a brief chase, officers said the two occupants of the vehicle fled on foot. They were located nearby and taken into custody without incident.
The suspects were identified as Tervarius Eugene Horton and Derrick Tervor Hicks.
Both were transported to the Decatur Police Department, where they met with detective Michael Kitchens. 
After further investigation, they were both charged with theft of property in the third degree and were transferred to the Morgan County Jail and held on $1,000 bonds.
During the investigation, officers said they discovered Horton was the suspect who allegedly threatened employees with a knife. Further charges are pending.
