Two Mesa brothers face aggravated robbery charges after they were arrested Saturday when police said they tried to steal items from a 99 Cent Store.
According to Mesa police, brothers Joshua Taylor Wroe, 22, and Dylan Tyler Wroe, 20, entered the store at 2070 S. Power Road at about 9:30 p.m., filled bags with merchandise and then attempted to leave without paying. The store’s 64-year-old manager was pushed to the ground and hit by one suspect when he confronted them. When three employees came to help the manager, they were assaulted by the other suspect, police said.
The pair left the merchandise and fled on foot. One was located in the Goodwill Store in the same retail complex. The other was identified and picked up by Mesa police.
