“At approximately 7:00pm this evening [Sunday], First District MPD officers responded to an armed robbery which occurred at 7th & E St. NE. The victim and witnesses provided a lookout for the suspects who fled in a silver colored vehicle.
Shortly thereafter, officers observed the vehicle in the Sixth District and were able to apprehend the suspects after a brief pursuit. All suspects were positively identified as the culprits in the robbery and charged accordingly.
