Robbery suspects nabbed quickly by police

ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) - Police cruisers swarm three men they say are responsible for two armed robberies in St. Louis. The alleged crimes happened just moments apart.

The suspect pounced on the victims pulling out guns and demanding money at two different St. Louis locations.  The video was captured exclusively by a FOX 2 photographer. The suspects were arrested on Chestnut and 18th after police saw them driving the wrong way on Chestnut around midnight.

They were in custody moments later. Instead of getting away with a big payday, they were in handcuffs with spotlights shined on them so the robbery victims could make identifications.

The first robbery happened on Broadway downtown.  The second was at 6th and Pine.  Police say the suspects worked fast. The robberies were only 17 minutes apart.
