WILMINGTON, Del. (WPVI) -- Delaware State Police have made two arrests in connection to an armed robbery at a Wilmington, Delaware Wawa on Valentine's Day.

They say 22-year-old Aris Patterson, of Yeadon, Pa., was one of two men who held up the convenience store at 705 Philadelphia Pike and got away with cash and cigarettes.

Police credit witnesses for helping them follow a getaway car, which Patterson allegedly jumped out of.

Investigators have also arrested 25-year-old Samantha Hooker, of Glenolden, Pa., the woman they say was driving the green Chevrolet Tahoe.

The vehicle is also supposedly linked to other armed robberies in Pennsylvania.

Police say more arrests are expected.
