Fort Worth police have arrested two of the four people wanted in connection with the robbery of the Big Ten Arcadia in the 9800-block of Saginaw in north Fort Worth on Monday Morning.

William Smith and Eric Harrington Jr., are both charged with aggravated robbery.

Fort Worth police released surveillance video of the robbery which showed the men's faces clearly visible as they brandish handguns and larger guns that look like rifles.

According to police, at about 4 a.m. Monday, one man walked into the business and acted like a customer before taking out a handgun, according to Capt. Kevin Rodricks.

That man then let three others in, who also had guns, to help in the robbery, Rodricks said.

During the robbery, two customers walked into the business, saw what was happening and attempted to leave, police said. One of the customers was shot three times. That man was listed in stable condition on Tuesday.

Another man ran from the business and injured himself after tripping in the parking lot. The robbers left the business in a dark-colored SUV, police said.

Police said this group is likely responsible for a handful of other game room robberies in the area.
