BURLINGTON, N.C. — Police are looking for a third suspect in connection to a robbery that happened Jan. 26 at El Gallo Giro in Burlington.

Two customers were approached by three men — two were armed with handguns — as they were walking to their car.

The suspects took one victim’s wallet and fled the area on foot.

Police traced the suspects back to an area near the Petersburg Apartments, and after a short foot pursuit two of the suspects were taken into custody.

Christopher James Carter, 22, and Devonte Jamal Headen, 17, were charged with armed robbery and resisting arrest.

The third suspect is still at large. Police did recover surveillance footage of the third suspect.
