1 arrested, 1 sought in connection with 21 armed robberies across Philadelphia, Cheltenham Twp.

PHILADELPHIA (AP/WTXF) - Police have arrested one half of the duo they say is responsible for at least 21 armed robberies across Philadelphia and Cheltenham Township.

Yasim Lowman, 23, was arrested near his home on 73rd Avenue on Tuesday. Another suspect remains on the run. 

Lowman is currently only being charged with the robbery of a Lukoil, which took place on Tuesday in Springfield Township.

A vehicle registered to the mother of one of the suspects' child led police to Lowman.

Police say the suspects have robbed several businesses since Aug. 17. Investigators say the suspects have targeted drug stores, dollar stores and pizza shops.

Anyone with information about the second suspect is asked to contact the Philadelphia Police Department.
