Two Wichita men were arrested and jailed early Sunday after allegedly robbing a convenience store at gunpoint, according to police.

Officer Charley Davidson of the Wichita Police Department said Denzel M. Aggison, 19, and Teondre Q. Young, 19, were arrested after a holdup alarm was triggered at the Circle K at 2190 N. Rock Road. The alarm went off at about 4:30 a.m. on Sunday.

A 21-year-old employee of the store reported that two men, one with a gun, had come in and demanded money.

According to police records, an assortment of goods was taken, including cartons and packages of cigarettes and cigars and several hundred dollars’ worth of lottery tickets.

Officers took the two suspects into custody without incident, Davidson said. No injuries were reported.
