Second Suspect Arrested In Pitt County Armed Robbery Using Butcher Knife

Pitt County deputies have arrested a second person in connection with a robbery earlier this year.

Deputies arrested Wren Wilkins of Robersonville after deputies say he and another man robbed a woman and her kids on Alexander Brown Road back on January third.

The woman said she was robbed with a butcher knife around 2:00 a.m.

Later that day deputies arrested Remarto Rodgers.

Their investigation led them to Wilkins who is charged today with conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon.

Deputies say the investigation is ongoing and that additional warrants may be issued.
