FORT WORTH -- Police have arrested two of three men suspected of robbing an ATM technician last week, then running over him after he chased and fought with one of them.

Juan Segura, 21, was found at a residence on Race Street on Wednesday night and arrested on an aggravated-robbery warrant after a short foot chase.

That same night, Arrington Marchello Chase-Ealy, 24, was arrested in the robbery and on unrelated warrants at a residence near Kentwood Place and Oak Hill Road in east Fort Worth.

"They were interviewed and they admitted their part in this offense," robbery Sgt. Joe Loughman said.

Both men were in the Mansfield Jail on Friday. Bail in the robbery was set at $100,000 for Chase-Ealy and $50,000 for Segura.

Police were still searching for a third suspect, Aaron Segura, Juan Segura's brother.

According to police, two men wearing hooded jackets walked into the Chevron store in the 1000 block of Bridgewood Drive on the afternoon of April 19.

While one stood at the front counter, the second walked to the back, where a 55-year-old technician was servicing the store's ATM.

A third man waited outside the store.

Police said the man in the back of the store snatched a moneybag and ran out with the man at the counter.

The technician chased the men and caught one, believed to be Juan Segura, in the parking lot.

During a fight, the technician pulled off the man's hooded jacket but fell.

Police said the two men jumped into a tan Isuzu Axiom SUV, which pulled forward and ran over the technician.

A witness told police he recognized Juan Segura, and another provided the Isuzu's license plate number, which was traced to Juan Segura, according to the police report.

Loughman said Chase-Ealy has since admitted that he was driving.

The technician remained hospitalized Friday with what police described as life-threatening injuries.

A John Peter Smith Hospital spokeswoman did not release the man's condition, at his family's request.

Police say Juan Segura also faces a charge of theft of $20,000 to $100,000 on accusations that he snatched a moneybag from the same technician and store in December. Bail in that case was set at $25,000.

Juan Segura's girlfriend, Vanessa Valdez, is believed to have been the getaway driver in that theft and faces the same charge, Loughman said. She was in the Mansfield Jail, with bail set at $10,000.
