Deputies: 1 teen arrested, 1 sought for armed robbery of delivery driver

NEW HANOVER COUNTY, N.C. (WECT) - One teenager was arrested and another is sought for the armed robbery of a Chinese food delivery driver earlier this week.

Deputies say a Chopstix delivery driver brought an order to the address and two juveniles pulled out a screwdriver and demanded money. Deputies say the juveniles then tried to stab the driver, who managed to flee into the woods behind the apartments.

On Friday, deputies say a 13-year-old was taken into custody and a juvenile petition was filed for a 16-year-old, who deputies are still searching for.
