Two males were arrested on Monday, June 11, after an armed robbery took place on the same day in the Wendy's parking lot in the 900 block of Dunlawton Ave.

The suspects were armed with a Glock 23 .40 caliber handgun and showed the firearm during the robbery. When one of the suspects approached the driver's side of the vehicle, which had two people in it, the driver deployed a can of pepper spray in the face of the suspect holding the gun. 

The suspects then fled without further violence and were later found a few blocks away at a convenience store. The handgun was also recovered from the suspect's vehicle. 

Jimmy Holmgren, 20, was arrested and taken to the Volusia County Branch Jail while the second male, a 17-year-old, was arrested and transported to the Port Orange Police Department pending information from the department of juvenile justice.
