INDIANAPOLIS — A 19-year-old man and a 15-year-old boy were arrested after an armed robbery Saturday at a Dollar General in Indianapolis and they led officers on a chase, according to police.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department detectives arrested the pair after they learned one of the suspects possibly pointed a gun at an employee during the robbery around 3:15 p.m. in the 3300 block of English Avenue.
