Two juveniles arrested for two Atkinson County armed robberies


Two juveniles have been arrested for the armed robbery that was committed at Chen's China restaurant in Pearson earlier, along with a second armed robbery that also occurred recently.

 

The first robbery took place on Saturday, September 10, around 7:53 p.m., with a suspect seen on video surveillance committing the act. The individual fled the scene on foot and was not apprehended at the time. 

 

 

On Thursday, September 29, officers were dispatched to a property on Lott Avenue at around 3:50 p.m. in response to a 911 hang-up call. When officers arrived, a man reported that two people approached him as he was standing at the back of a trailer and robbed him at gunpoint. 

 

 

Two minors were charged in connection with both occurrences as a result of evidence discovered throughout the investigation, according to a

 

Pearson Police Department official. They were both charged with two counts of armed robbery after being taken into custody.
