Ottawa police have arrested two men believed to be behind five brazen armed robberies in the capital.

Matthew Rocheleau, 22, and Brian Henry, 28, are both facing charges, which stem from police investigations into several robberies, including a Food Basics store that was robbed twice on Merivale Road.

In those robberies, police say men carrying firearms forced employees into a back room.

Police say additional arrests may be made.

Anyone with information about the robberies is asked to call Ottawa police at 613-236-1222 ext. 5116 or Crime Stoppers at 613-233-TIPS.
