One adult male and one juvenile were arrested by Tampa Police Department for their involvement in two armed robberies near Ybor City early Monday morning. 

Police say they were able to locate the suspects, who both had firearms in their possession. 

The suspects reportedly approached the victims as they were walking in the area, demanded their property, and then shot their guns into the air. One victim was pistol-whipped and sustained minor injuries. 

No one was shot in either robbery incident. 

Police did not release the identity of victims in this case. They also have not released the identity of the juvenile, but say the second suspect is 21-year-old Jalen Wisher of Brandon. 

The incidents are under investigation.
