Two men have been arrested and a third person is being sought after a armed robbery and kidnapping early Friday morning at a Pizza Hut in Spartanburg County.

Master Deputy Kevin Bobo of the Spartanburg County Sheriff's Office stated that Timothy Stanley Miller, 19, of Spartanburg, and Aquavious Jujuan Ray, 19, also of Spartanburg, were each arrested and charged with five counts of kidnapping, four counts of armed robbery, and one count each of attempted murder and possession of a weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

According to a report obtained from the sheriff's office, employees at the Pizza Hut located at 1696 Asheville Highway in Spartanburg, were cleaning up after closing early Friday morning when two armed black males entered the business from a unlocked door in the back. The report states that the men accosted the employees and demanded money from the store's register and safe . The suspects managed to get the money, as well as the employee's cell phones and fled the store.

According to Bobo, a third suspect involved in the crime has yet to be identified. If anyone has any information about the  crime or suspect, they are asked to contact Crimestoppers at 1-888-CRIME-SC. A reward of up to $2,000 is being offered. 

Miller and Ray are currently being held without bond at the Spartanburg County Detention Center.
