Authorities with the Fayetteville Police Department made two arrests Tuesday in connection with an attempted robbery of a local man who happened to be armed as he was walking along Amana Avenue late last month.

Arrested last week were Byrion Fox, 19, and Alexander Dean, 20, both of Fayetteville. Both were charged with attempted aggravated robbery.

Investigators said that, according to the victim, the two subjects approached him wearing masks and armed, demanding that he give them “what he had.”
