Two Madison men were arrested Friday morning in connection to a string of downtown burglaries overnight, police said.

Anthony Williams and Taris Henderson, both 18, threatened residents on Langdon Street with a knife before creating a disturbance inside a University Avenue store, which led to their arrests, according to a police report.

University of Wisconsin-Madison police apprehended the duo before Madison police formally arrested them in connection to a variety of crimes that occurred overnight in the State-Langdon neighborhood.

Williams was charged Thursday with three counts of armed burglary, two counts of armed robbery with the threat of force, three counts of receiving stolen property and one count of marijuana possession.

Henderson was charged Thursday with five counts of burglary, three counts of armed burglary and two counts of armed robbery.

One of the suspects told police that during the crime spree he was checking apartment doors and targeting residences where tenants had not locked their doors.
