Tampa police arrest one robbery suspect, search for a second

TAMPA — Police arrested a man thought to have barricaded himself in an apartment Tuesday after a string of robbery attempts.

Henry Charles Warren, 26, and an unidentified suspect tried to rob a man at gunpoint in front of Warren's apartment in the 800 block of Riverbrook Court, police said.

The victim got away, so the two men moved on to trying to carjack a second victim, police said.

After failing again, Warren and the second man robbed two women — getting away with a purse — before fleeing.

Police negotiators attempted to make contact to determine if the men were in their apartment, but found no one inside. They did find a gun determined to be stolen by the Hillsborough County Sheriff's office.

Police arrested Warren's girlfriend, 32-year-old Joannie Denise Fisher, and charged her with being an accessory. Warren was charged with armed robbery and police were trying to find the second suspect.
