Tri-Cities, TN -

Police arrested Ariel Muller on several charges stemming from a robbery at La Perla III restaurant and grocery store on South Roan Street in Johnson City.  Muller also faces charges associated with car jacking, child endangerment and criminal impersonation.  Muller first told police his name was Brandon Alves.  Police also Abigail Scott on charges associated to the robbery and child endangerment.

After the robbery, police say Muller fled to Unicoi County in a car reported stolen in Erwin, Tennessee last Wednesday.  Officers located the suspects near Norton hollow road.

"We searched the area for about an hour and a half.  One of my officers, Josh Randolf, spotted the suspect.  He had taken his clothes off and covered himself up with leaves for camouflage," said Unicoi County Sheriff Mike Hensley.

Sheriff Hensley also said an Erwin police officer was knocked to the ground during the man hunt, but is expected to be okay.

The investigation is on going and police also tell us two children are in the care of DCS after the events.
