MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Two of the men police say robbed a clothing store in broad daylight is now behind bars.

Ladarius Robinson is charged with three counts of aggravated robbery and two counts of especially aggravated kidnapping. Tedarius Hines was also arrested.

Police say the pair, along with two other men, walked in the Icon clothing store on S. Highland Street armed and wearing masks.

The affidavit says two female employees were inside the store and when one tried to run, another suspect who was armed with a hammer, threw her back inside.

Both women were then forced to the front of the store. Investigators say the men grabbed about $12,000 worth of merchandise and ran outside to a getaway car.

Two witnesses saw the rest of the alleged crime unfold right before their eyes, telling police the men drove to a church parking lot, unloaded all the stolen loot into a truck, and drove off.

Robinson and Hines were taken into custody on Park Avenue and Inez Street.

Robinson is preparing to go before a judge Friday morning.

The other two suspected robbers are still on the run.
