Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Rochester police are reporting the arrests of two suspects in an armed robbery that occurred yesterday evening.

Police Captain Casey Moilanen says 22-year-old Robert Mosley and 21-year-old Siani Banks were taken into custody this morning at a residence in the 200 block of 15th Street Northeast. They were previously identified as the suspects in the holdup at the Subway Restaurant located in the Eastwood Plaza shopping center along Highway 14 near Cub Foods.

Police were called to the business around 6 o'clock last night after a man and woman went up to an employee at the counter and demanded the worker hand over the money from the cash register after he placed his hand in his sweatshirt and indicated he had a gun. The couple then fled from the scene in a car.

Captain Moilanen says, based on the descriptions provided by the employee and witnesses, the officers recognized the suspects from an earlier incident at the shopping center and used body camera video to identify them.
