(CBSDFW.COM) – Two of three suspects wanted in an aggravated robbery in Corinth, were busted in North Carolina.
Mark Ellis and Malik Edwards were arrested in Charlotte by local authorities. Another man William Ellis was spotted, but got away before police there could catch him.
The three were wanted in connection with a home invasion that occurred in Corinth earlier this month. The victim was called by a woman, named Annika Draeger whom he had just met, asking him to take her to his home. While Draeger distracted him, two men broke into the victims home, wearing hoodies and masks, and duct taped the man’s wrist and ankles.
“They were able to steal a handgun from him, a gaming device and they took his ATM card.” said Jimmy Gregg with Corinth police. “They tried to remove money from an ATM, but they didn’t have any luck doing so.”
He says after that, they dropped the victim off in the back of his apartment and sped off.
The victim was not injured.
Draeger was arrested in Denton soon after the break in. The search for William Ellis continues in North Carolina.
