Two men are in Tulsa Jail in connection to armed robberies at Kum & Go convenience stores earlier last week. Kaleb Myers, 22, and Julien Lee Hale, 20, were arrested on two complaints of felony armed robbery Thursday.

Myers was also booked on a complaint of assault and battery with a deadly weapon.

Police say Myers and Hale robbed two convenience stores on August 17, 2012, - one at 14495 East 51st Street and the other at 11296 East 71st Street.

Three masked men entered the stores in a "take-over style robbery," according to a Tulsa Police arrest report.

One of the men vaulted over the counter, stealing money and cigarettes, the report states.

In one of the robberies, an 18-year-old clerk was pistol whipped. She told police the men dragged her into a back room and hit her on the head. Police say she was not seriously injured.

Police say Julien Hale admitted that he robbed the stores and that his gray Mercury Marquis was used as the getaway car.

Hale claimed that he was not armed during the robberies, the arrest report states. Officers recovered evidence from both robberies and say Myers' fingerprints were found.

Hale is being held on a $150,000 bond. Myers is being held in the Tulsa County Jail on a $160,000 bond. Both men have former felony convictions.

Police are still looking for the third man.
