Police booked three suspects after they robbed one victim at knife point on Friday night, according to the Salinas Police Department. Shortly after 10:30 p.m., two 16-year-olds and 18-year-old Ruben Prado approached a 17-year-old male talking on his cell phone on the 600 block of East Alisal Street, according to police.
