TUCSON (KGUN9-TV) - Deputies need the public's help identifying two men involved in a violent home invasion on the northwest side.
Deputy Tom Peine with the Pima County Sheriff's Department tells KGUN9 that three men approached a home in the 7700 block of North Stargrass on October 28 asking if the homeowner needed any yard work.
One man put the homeowner in a choke-hold and held a gun to his head, while another man demanded valuables from the home.
Two women in the home were forced to the back of the building at gun point.
A third man walked up sometime later and joined the first two.
They left the home with wallets and cell phones.
No one was injured in the incident.
One of the robbers, Dominic Tyrone Dixon was arrested Thursday in the parking lot of the Tucson mall and booked into the Pima County Jail.
The other two men are still on the loose and deputies urge anyone with information to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
Detectives say they think the robbers may hit another home and the warn the public to call 911 if anyone suspicious is outside their door.
