SWISSVALE, Pa. — Allegheny County police arrested two men early Wednesday in a series of robberies that spanned three counties.
Officers arrested Rexford Enoch Prince-Wright, 23, and Elijah Sayon, both of Hagerstown, Maryland, for robberies in Allegheny, Washington and Westmoreland counties over the past few days.
They are responsible for an armed robbery at a convenience store in Kennedy Township early Tuesday morning, according to police.
One of the men walked to the counter to buy something and during the purchase, the man pulled out a double barrel shotgun, pointed it at the clerk and demanded cash before taking off, investigators said.
Allegheny County police got a description of the car and learned the men were believed to be involved in several other similar robberies, including two in Westmoreland County on August 3, and another in Washington County on Tuesday.
Both men were found with the vehicle and the shotgun in Swissvale and were arrested, and are facing several charges.
