TULSA, Oklahoma -- Two teens were arrested after two armed robberies in east Tulsa. The two men have been identified as 18-year-old Dimitri King and 18-year-old Joshua Graves.

Police say King and Graves first robbed someone in the parking lot of the Garden Courtyards apartment complex at 41st & Garnett at about 10 p.m. Thursday.

The first victim was walking home from the nearby McDonalds when he was approached by the two men. One of the men put a pistol to the victim's head and demanded his wallet.

The robbery victim gave a description of the two men to police, and about an hour later the same suspects robbed a woman at gunpoint in the McDonalds drive-through at 42nd and Garnett.

Tulsa police set up a surveillance in the apartment complex parking lot and waited for the two suspects to return. 

One man ran and was found by a K9 officer. He received a bite on the ankle.

Both are in custody on two counts of armed robbery.
