Brandon Mitchell, Roger Burton arrested in Peoria armed robbery

PEORIA, AZ - Two men have been arrested for allegedly robbing a woman at gun point and stealing her purse.

Amanda Jacinto, Peoria Police spokeswoman, said police arrested 26-year-old Brandon Mitchell and 46-year-old Roger Burton Friday evening, June 14 at a Phoenix residence in connection to the armed robbery of a woman earlier this month.

Police said Mitchell and Roger followed a Valley woman to her home near 75th Avenue and Mountain View Road from the bank when she was approached by Mitchell, who pulled out a gun and demanded the woman's purse. Rodger acted as the get-away driver.

The men attempted to use the woman's debit card at a local convenience store near 59th Avenue and Camelback Road, said Jacinto.

Police released images from surveillance video and asked for the public's help in identifying the individuals. Police said detectives received some tips that left to the arrest of the two men.
