UPDATE: A suspect believed to be the third suspect wanted for assault and stealing an Xbox was arrested Thursday night.

(Dec, 4, 11:48 a.m.) Rockdale deputies arrested two robbery suspects Tuesday night and are looking for a third suspect.

On Tuesday, Dec. 3, 2013, at around 7 p.m., Rockdale County Sheriff's Office deputies responded to an armed robbery call on Fieldstone View Lane off Salem Road.

The victim told dispatchers that he went to a residence on Fieldstone View Lane to sell an Xbox video game system after arranging the deal through a social media website. When the 19-year-old victim arrived at the residence, a group of suspects jumped the victim and stole the video game system. The suspects fled on foot.

Deputies arrived and obtained a description of the suspects. Within 30 minutes of the robbery, two suspects matching the descriptions were found in the area outside and stopped. They were taken to the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office to be interviewed. Those two suspects were arrested and charged in connection to the robbery.

The two suspects are Brian Jose Arciles, 17, of Fieldstone View Lane in Conyers and a 15 year old juvenile male. Arciles was charged with Robbery and booked into the Rockdale jail. The 15 year old juvenile male has been charged with Robbery and Battery.

An unidentified black male was named as a third suspect in the robbery.

"I want to commend deputies for their quick response and apprehension of the two suspects," said Sheriff Eric Levett. "With the large presence of deputies already in the Salem Road area due to the ongoing task force, we were able to quickly swarm the area of the robbery and arrest the two suspects. We understand that our task force efforts will not stop crime altogether, but it did allow us to quickly respond and locate the suspects due to the high concentration of deputies in the area."

Anyone with more information about this robbery and/or the identity of the third suspect is asked to contact the Rockdale County Sheriff's Office at 770-278-8000.
