Spartanburg County deputies have arrested two men who were wanted in connection with two armed robberies in October.

Earlier in November, deputies identified Justin Dawkins, 25, of Gaffney, and Emmanuel Hutchinson, 31, of Spartanburg, as the two suspects who wore Halloween masks during the robbery of the Lil' Cricket at 2796 Southport Rd. on Oct. 28.

They were both arrested on Wednesday and each was charged with two counts of armed robbery and two counts of possession of a weapon during a violent crime. They are being held at the Spartanburg County Detention Center.

During the Oct. 28 robbery, deputies said one of the men hit the clerk in the head with his gun before running away.

Laurens County deputies said Dawkins and Hutchinson were wanted along with a third suspect in connection with two home invasions that happened on Oct. 28 and Oct. 29 in the Enoree area. In one of those incidents, deputies said the men forced everybody to strip their clothes off in front of each other.
