MIDLAND, TX (KWES) -

Authorities have made a second arrest in connection with an aggravated robbery that occurred on Sunday in Midland.

Gamarian Brown, 23, was arrested on Tuesday evening after admitting to taking part in the robbery. Victor Patton, 20, was arrested earlier this week.

It all took place at the Annex Apartments on A Street on Sunday night.

Police say Patton was in the backseat of a Honda CRV armed with an AK-47 when pulled up to their victim and demanded he get into the back seat.

As the victim was handing over his wallet, he retrieved his own pistol, pointing it at the suspects in what police believed to be an act of self-defense.

After a brief struggle, the victim was pushed out of the vehicle after he recovered his wallet.

The suspects fled the scene in the vehicle and crashed into a fence before leaving on foot and throwing the rifle into a field.

The investigation into the case is ongoing.
