Winter Haven , Florida-- Update: Winter Haven Police identified the third suspect in the K-mart robbery. They consider 28-year-old  Kareem Danell "SuWu" Archibald to be "armed and extremely dangerous." 

They have obtained a warrant for his arrest, and ask the public to report any sightings. 

He has been described as a black male, who is 6'1 and 160 pounds.

Earlier information:

Three suspects armed with a handgun robbed a local K-Mart last night. Police and deputies have two of the suspects in custody, but one remains on the loose, "armed and extremely dangerous."

It was Thursday, July 19 around 9:50 p.m. when, police say, three suspects armed with a handgun robbed the K-Mart store, located at 6015 Cypress Gardens Boulevard S.E. in Winter Haven.  

Witnesses told police the suspects fled in a gray Nissan on Cypress Gardens Boulevard, and approximately 10 minutes after the reported robbery, Polk County Sheriff's Deputy Lance Turley spotted the car near Dundee Road and Buckeye Loop Road.  

A Winter Haven officer arrived as back-up and attempted to stop the car.  Reports say the suspects attempted to get away, but the officer chased them, until two passengers got out of the car near Palm Place Apartments, and ran.

Deputies and officers captured one suspect after running after him into the apartment complex. They identified him as 35-year-old, Michael James. 

Reports say the Sheriff's Office helicopter continued to follow the other suspect, who remained in the vehicle.

The driver of the car, 23-year-old Bryan Olsen, surrendered east of the Wal-Mart Distribution Center. 

Reports indicate  the third suspect is still at large, and Winter Haven Police detectives are actively following leads that should result in an arrest.  

James has been charged with Armed Robbery with a Firearm and Resisting an Officer Without Violence.

Olsen racked up more charges than James,  as reports say officials charged him with Armed Burglary, Armed Robbery with a Firearm, Aggravated Fleeing and Driving with a Suspended License.
