Police arrested a Madison teenager this week in connection with two armed robberies that took place at Madison Bazaar.

Madison police said 17-year-old Brandon L. Nelson was arrested on suspicion of two counts of armed robbery Wednesday morning.

Madison police spokesman Joel DeSpain said surveillance images helped detectives identify Nelson.
