28-year-old Jarvis Brack and 51-year-old Willie Carter were arrested Sunday after they allegedly beat the owner of a convenience store who confronted them as they robbed his store.

The robbery took place at the Kwik Mart in the 1200 block of 7th street just before 11 p.m. Sunday. When police arrived on the scene, the Kwik Mart owner has a swollen face from the beating.

Brack was charged with Robbery, Mob Action, and Fleeting to Elude. Carter was charged with Robbery and Mob Action.
