PETERSBURG, VA (WWBT) - Two teens were arrested Sunday after an armed robbery at a 7-Eleven, but one suspect remains on the run.

The Petersburg Police Department says the three suspects entered the store at 900 S. Sycamore St. around 9:35 a.m. wearing jackets with hoods over their heads and bandanas covering their faces.

They took money and other merchandise in the store.

Several tips helped police arrest two of the suspects, who were 16 and 17 years old. The third suspect, who police say had the firearm, remains free. He's said to have a large build with shoulder-length braids.
