KINGSPORT, Tenn. -

Two men are facing charges after being accused of robbing a man at gunpoint and then leading Kingsport police on a high-speed chase.

Jordan Johnson and Matthew Leonard are charged with aggravated robbery and theft under $500.

Johnson was additionally charged with felony evading arrest, along with other charges.

Police say the suspects entered the victim's apartment at Holly Hills on Watterson Street, then took his wallet and cell phone. Officers say they later found the suspects in a car, and that's when police say the pursuit began.

Johnson was found and arrested the next day at the Dollar General store on Lynn Garden Drive.

Police are still looking for Matthew Leonard.

If you know where he may be, you're asked to call Kingsport police at (423) 246-9111.
