Two siblings are accused of attacking a Chandler store employee after a robbery. 

Chandler police report that on June 14 officers from the Gila River Police Department located and captured Waylon Kenneth Antone and Kaitlyn Violet Antone, after a violent robbery at Fry's grocery store in Chandler. 

The Antone's are 20-year-old twins, and allegedly robbed the Fry's store at McQueen and Riggs roads. 

Police say on May 31 they entered the store and stole bottles of alcohol and fireworks. 

Police say a store employee stepped in front of them as they were exiting the building and Waylon reportedly, "continues walking, never breaking stride and violently punches the victim in the head."

The victim fell outside the store where Kaitlyn allegedly struck him in the head with the stolen bottle of alcohol, shattering it. 

Police say the victim suffered brain bleed and required stitches to close the wound. 

Pictures taken from the store surveillance video were sent to nearby law enforcement agencies. Officers from the Gila River recognized Waylon. 

They were both arrested at their home and are awaiting extradition from the Gila River Indian Community on a charge of aggravated robbery.
