Round Rock Police say they have arrested two men who attempted to rob a jewelry store in the La Frontera shopping area Monday.

Police were called to the QY Jewelry store around 4:00 p.m. on Monday. According to investigators, two men entered the store with a gun and demanded everything in the store. The store owner shot at the suspects who then fled the scene.

Officers searched the area but could not locate the suspects.

Just before 10:00 p.m. on Monday, police received a call from a woman stating that two men wearing dark clothing had just robbed her at gunpoint. Police were able to locate the two suspects, Brandon Maldonado and Alexander Mejicano in another apartment complex about a mile away.

Investigators said that after Mejicano and Maldonado were arrested, they recovered the women's stolen property on them. Additionally, investigators said that the two men confessed to the attempted robbery at the QT Jewelry store earlier that day.

Both men have been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.
