WILLIMANTIC, CT (WFSB) -

Police arrested a man and woman in connection with an overnight robbery at the Dunkin' Donuts in Willimantic.

Willimantic resident Kiara Wilson entered the business, which is located on Main Street, around 3 a.m. Once inside, police said 26-year-old Wilson pointed a gun at a clerk and left with an undetermined amount of money. 

Wilson then fled the store and rode off on a bicycle with 53-year-old, Willimantic resident Daniel Henderson.                                    

Police said they searched the area and found Wilson and Henderson walking with a bike.

They ran from the officers, but police were able to track Henderson with a K9 unit. Police took Henderson into custody without incident. 

A "facsimile firearm" was found by officers near the Dunkin' Donuts in an alleyway. 

About 30 minutes later, Wilson was found hiding in a trash can. Police took Wilson into custody without incident. 

Wilson was charged with first-degree robbery and breach of peace while Henderson was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery and sixth-degree conspiracy to commit larceny. 

Both are expected to be arraigned at Danielson Superior Court on Friday. Wilson is being held on $150,000 while Henderson is being held on $100,000 bond.
