One adult and one juvenile man have been arrested and charged with robbery in connection with two armed robberies that happened in Bellaire in mid-July.
The two men allegedly robbed two women at just after 6 p.m. July 14, and attempted to hold up another victim, according to Bellaire Community Relations Officer Tim Quimby.
The women were walking in a residential area of the city when they were approached by the men, Quimby said. Although the incidents were just minutes apart, the men used different vehicles in each of the crimes, Quimby said.
“It turns out one guy used a stolen credit card at a gas station. And they got the video of that and identified who he was,” Quimby said.
One of the suspects is 17 years old, and the other is younger, Quimby said.
