Police have arrested two suspects in connection with robberies in the South Philly areas of Queen Village and Point Breeze.

28-year-old Sophorn Ouch and 19-year-old-Nicholas Pompeii were arrested on robbery charges.

Officials were looking for three suspects: 2 men and 1 woman who police say are connected to at least three armed robberies.

Detective say anonymous tips lead them to the arrest of Pompeii on 1700 block of South Chadwick Street on Tuesday. Ouch was arrested while sitting in front of her home. Officers say they immediately recognized her from surveillance videos.

Ouch was caught on camera at Wal-Mart on Columbus Blvd. Police say she used a woman's stolen credit card to buy an entire shopping cart of goods. The suspect then left the store and loaded up in a Camry.
