Two people are facing felony charges after allegedly robbing a 20-year old man at knifepoint in Riverhead Sunday night, police said.

Police were called to 445 West Main Street just before 10 p.m. Sunday for reports of a robbery and found a 20-year-old man had been robbed of $400 at knifepoint, with two suspects fleeing the area.

“Within minutes,” and with the help of a canine unit, police located David Moore, 40, and Renee McKinney, 49, on the corner of Parkway Street, officials said.

The two were arrested and each charged with first-degree robbery, a class-B felony, and arraigned Monday morning in Town Justice Court, police said.

Mr. Moore is being held at Suffolk County Correction Facility on $100,000 bail.

Ms. McKinney is being held without bail because of prior felony convictions, police said.

Details of those convictions were not immediately available.
