Conway Police arrested two suspects in connection with an alleged aggravated robbery at Budget Inn in Conway on Thursday, minutes after the incident occurred.
Eighteen-year-old Danny Sanchez and 19-year-old Dionisio Garcia, both of Conway, were stopped by a motorcycle officer on Attwood Drive, near Stanley Russ Road, 10 minutes after police responded to the call at Budget Inn, 103 Harkrider St.
According to a Conway Police Department report, police responded to the call at 1:22 p.m., where a clerk stated that two men came in to the business office, "pulled out a gun and a knife and demanded money."
According to the report, the clerk complied and the men left the area.
The clerk gave police the suspects’ general direction of travel and the license plate number from their vehicle.
At the arrest, police recovered cash and "other items," along with a BB gun that was believed to have been used during the robbery.
