After deputies arrested two of four men wanted for assault and burglary, now the other two suspects have been incarcerated.

Pitt County Sheriff's Office spokeswoman, Christy Wallace, said deputies teamed up with the US Marshals to arrest Dashaun Persons and Fabion Jackson, both 18 years old, on Wednesday night.

Both men are now facing three charges of conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, two charges of first degree burglary, and robbery with a dangerous weapon according to officials.

Deputies said Persons and Jackson were both wanted in connection to a pair of attempted armed robberies, and one armed robbery in the Belvoir area on March 30th.

Two other men, Christopher Hall and Darius Hemphill, have already been arrested in connection with the case.

Warrants state the two got just $2 from one victim after assaulting him with a pistol. In other cases, the two are accused of breaking into two homes on Dusty Lane and trying to rob the occupants.

Person and Jackson are now in the Pitt County Detention Center. Deputies say no bond has been set for either man.
