King was arrested Thursday in Dublin, Georgia. Police continue to search for the second suspect.
Investigators said they are withholding the second suspect’s name until they are brought into custody.
Both suspects will be charged with aggravated assault, armed robbery and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony.
