WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - A second arrest was made Wednesday morning in connection to two recent aggravated robberies in Wichita Falls.

Around 8:15 a.m. Wednesday officers with the Wichita Falls Police Department went to a home in the 2100 block of Avenue H in reference to a suspect with a warrant for Aggravated Robbery.

When police arrived they found the 16-year-old man and took him into custody. The warrants for his arrest stemmed from two aggravated robberies.

On October 22 around 10:15 p.m. two suspects pulled a gun on a victim and demanded his wallet in the 1400 block of Beverly.

They made off with the man's wallet. The second robbery took place a few minutes later in the 4100 block of Seymour Hwy.

Two armed suspects entered the Eskimo Hut and demanded money before fleeing on foot with cash, cigarillos and the victim's phone.

Since the suspect is underage his name will not be released. On Friday, October 27, Justice Smith, 22, was arrested in connection with these robberies.

This was the second arrest made in connection to recent robberies on Wednesday morning in the 2100 block of Avenue H.

Another arrest was made in connection with the armed robbery of the Phillips 66 convenience store on Kemp Blvd. on Halloween night.

Devin Mullins, 17, was arrested and charged with Aggravated Robbery for the incident.
