Two Janesville men were arrested Thursday night in connection with an armed robbery at a Subway sandwich shop, Janesville police said.

Officers responded at 10:30 p.m. Thursday to the Subway restaurant at 1929 Center Ave. and saw a vehicle leaving at a high rate of speed, police Sgt. Aaron Dammen said.
