Police in Greenville are investigating an armed robbery at a movie theater.

The second wanted suspect 20 year old Kelvin Roberson was arrested Thursday night and booked into the Pitt County Detention Center around 6:30 p.m.

Roberson is charged with Robbery with A Dangerous Weapon placed under a $10,000 bond.

The other arrest was made Monday night of a 15 year old juvenile whose name has not been released.

The arrests are in response to a Greenville police report of two women who say they were robbed at gunpoint about 10 p.m. Monday outside Greenville Grande theater on Southwest Greenville Boulevard. 

The two suspects were armed with a semi-automatic firearm, the victims said.

Greenville detectives have arrested one suspect. His name has not been released because he is a juvenile.

One of the victims, 21-year-old Samantha Sandavol, said the two men covered their faces with a green bandana and a dish towel.

"They didn't do nothing; they were more afraid of us because we just kept shouting away," Sandavol said. "We told them we would not give them anything unless they held their hands up and stood in the light. They complied, and my sister threw them the money."

Sandavol said the robbers only got away with $20.

No one was hurt.
