Harrisburg police said they arrested two men and are looking for a third person who robbed a cell phone store and then returned to burglarize the business days later.

Willie Barnes, 19, of the 400 block of Muench Street, and Tre Williams, 18, of the 1900 block Forster Street, were placed in the Dauphin County Prison after family and others revealed their identities, police said Friday.

Eighteen-year-old Jovon Hymon, no fixed address, remains at large, police said.

Investigators accuse the three of robbing the Boost Mobile store at 1001 N. 3rd Street on May 8, when one of them allegedly punched a clerk in the face before all three fled with armfuls of packaged cell phones and cash from
the register.

The clerk suffered a laceration to his
lip and contusions.

Authorities said the three returned to the store during the early morning of May 19 and forced their way inside.

In an incident caught on surveillance video, an employee of a neighboring pizza shop tried to stop the burglars as they exited the store with stolen items. He was
able to trip one of the burglars, but the three got away, police said.

Anyone with information regarding Hymon's whereabouts may call Harrisburg police at 717-255-3182 or 717-255-3114.
