Authorities Wednesday announced the arrest of one of two men accused in the armed robbery of a Rolex store at the Westfield Century City Mall in August.

The heist occurred about noon on Aug. 24 at the luxury watch business in the 10000 block of Santa Monica Boulevard.

Dominic Calloway, 26, was arrested on Nov. 11 at his South Los Angeles home, and was being held without bail, the Los Angeles Police Department reported. He’s due in court on Nov. 25.

Calloway and another man — both armed with assault-type weapons and wearing ski masks — allegedly forced their way into the store as a security guard attempted to close the door.

The suspects had been seen going up an escalator to the business, and the guard had tried to stop them.

“The first suspect discharged a round into the store, striking a display wall of glass,” according to an LAPD statement. “Both suspects directed everyone to lay on the floor. The second suspect, later identified as Calloway, ran directly to a display case and took several designer, high value watches.”

The suspects ran down the escalator and fled in a stolen car that was driven by a third suspect. The car was later found a half block away.

The other gunman, who remains at large, was described as black, 30-40 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tal, and weighing around 180 pounds. There was no description of the getaway driver.

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call detectives at (310) 444-1580, or (877) LAPD-247.
