PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Philadelphia Police say they’ve arrested one of two men wanted for multiple robberies in Queen Village and Point Breeze.

Kennan Gentry and Nicholas Pompeii were identified as the suspects wanted for the robberies on Tuesday (see related story).

On Wednesday, police say multiple tips received during the investigation lead them to the 1700 block of South Chadwick Street, where Pompeii was arrested.

While looking around the area for Gentry, officers spotted 28-year-old Sophorn Ouch sitting outside her house on the 1600 block of South Bancroft Street and immediately recognized her as the suspect caught in surveillance video from the robbery scenes.

Ouch was also taken into police custody.

Kennan Gentry remains at large.

If you have any information on Gentry or Pompeii, you’re asked to contact 215.686.TIPS (8477) or text a tip to PPD TIP or 773847.
