JANESVILLE (WREX) -

Two Loves Park men were arrested Tuesday night in Rock County for an armed robbery in the 5800 block of North Glenmoor Lane in Janesville Township.

Two men pointed guns at a man and his son in a driveway and took an iPhone and a laptop before escaping in a Cadillac. The man followed the suspects to a parking lot behind the Janesville Athletic Club on Blackbridge Road where the Cadillac had hit a building and gotten stuck in a snow bank. The man then went to a nearby bar to call 911, telling Dispatch the men had taken the license plate off the car and ran away.

Rock County Deputies began a foot pursuit and Janesville Police Officers and a K9 unit responded and helped take both suspects into custody. In a search of the area and vehicle, two guns, a cell phone, and laptop were recovered.

Brandon M. Bunch, 23, and Brandon S. Turnure, 20, both of Loves Park, were charged with armed robbery taken to the Rock County Jail to await a court appearance on March 21. Additional charges are expected; the two men are linked to a similar incident in Madison on March 16.
