Sulphur Springs’ police officers arrested the man at his residence in the 400 block of east Ross Street Tuesday evening just before 8 p.m. At first the man refused to come out of the house. After officers set up a perimeter around the house, the suspect came out and laid down on the ground. Meanwhile a search for a second suspect in the armed robbery is continuing.
