Two Arrested in Vann Drive Armed Robbery

7 Eyewitness News Staff

JACKSON, Tenn. - Two men are behind bars Saturday, accused of robbing someone at gunpoint on Vann Drive.

Police said they arrested the two suspects, just minutes after they robbed an RMA Express employee outside the BP gas station around 8:30 p.m. Friday in The Columns.

The victim told investigators he was taking a break by his car, when he was approached by a man wearing a black ski mask, and carrying a revolver.

Police said the masked man demanded money from the victim.

The victim told him he did not have any, so the suspect then reportedly punched him in the mouth, and ran away.

He suffered minor injuries.

Police said they will identify the suspects once they have been formally charged with aggravated robbery.
