JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Late Wednesday night, Jackson police arrested two teenagers in the Metro PCS armed robbery.

17-year-old Anthony Hooper was charged with armed robbery, and 18-year-old Noah Bradford was also charged with armed robbery.

These two teenagers robbed the Metro P-C-S cellphone store at gun point on Wednesday. This time it happened at the Raymond Road location at 11:30 a.m.

"When they came in, they asked for the money and we gave it to them," said LaParish Williams. "They jumped on the counter and put guns to our heads."

Two men bombarded Metro PCS just before noon, with guns drawn, demanding money. Employee LaParish Williams said this is the second time an armed robbery has happened at this Raymond Road location while she was working.

"The first time we got robbed was on November 11. This is the second time and I was here both times," added Williams. "I'm pissed off. I'm just scared. I have a one year old daughter and if anything happens to me that's all I was thinking of was my daughter."

Jackson Police released surveillance pictures as the crime unfolded. Just 24 hours prior, suspects attempted to rob another Metro PCS, this time on McDowell Road. In that case, the employee fired shots back.

Jackson Police Commander Tyree Jones said the suspects in the most recent armed robbery case are believed to have come into the store prior to coming back to commit the crime.

The men got away with cash and equipment from the cell phone store. It isn't clear if the robberies are connected.

"I just hope the police catch who did this because I think it's the same people from the first time we got robbed," said Williams.
