WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

Two people have been arrested in connection to a robbery that happened in December where two people were held at gunpoint at a gas station and taken to a bank to withdraw cash.

According to the Wilmington Police Department, Taron Lesaun Robinson, 18, and Teon Mar'e Clark, 19, have been charged with two counts of robbery with dangerous weapon, larceny of a firearm and two counts of second degree kidnapping for the incident on Dec. 15, 2014.

Robinson was captured by officers with the U.S. Marshals Task Force on Jan. 27 and Clark was apprehended by deputies with the New Hanover County Sheriff's Office for a probation violation on Jan. 23.

Officials say officers responded to the area of the Toys"R"Us on the 4500 block of Oleander Drive in reference to a robbery at a gas station on the 500 block of North Third Street around 4:40 p.m.

One of the victims told officers that as he was pumping gas, two black males approached him with handguns.

One suspect forced him back in his car with the other victim, while the other suspect got in the vehicle, and told the victims to drive to a bank on Randall Parkway.

Upon arrival, the victims withdrew an unknown amount of money and gave it to the suspects.

The suspects then told them to drive to an area behind New Hanover County High School, where he got out of the vehicle and ran away.

After the suspects were gone, the victims noticed a handgun had been stolen from the vehicle. They then drove to Toys"R"Us and called police.
