A second arrest has been made in the robbery of a Gap store in the Aboretum last month.

James Victor Broadhurst, 25, was arrested Friday by the Violent Criminal Apprehension team with the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department.

Broadhurst was taken to Carolinas Medical Center during an interview with detectives for a pre-existing medical condition and was later charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon and second-degree kidnapping.

Broadhurst is charged in connection with a Nov. 21 robbery at the clothing store on Providence Road in the Arboretum Shopping Center. According to a police report, the robbers, armed with guns, stole the belongings of eight people inside.

Earlier this month, police arrested Ariel Terry, 22, and charged her with three counts of robbery with a dangerous weapon, second-degree kidnapping, conspiracy and misdemeanor robbery in connection with the robbery.

Police and witnesses have said there were several robbers, but investigators haven’t released details about other suspects.

Police said the investigation is ongoing.
