A group of suspects are now in the custody of the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center after Akron Police say they're linked to a string of Sunday robberies in town.
Three alleged armed robberies were reported in Akron within minutes of one another.
The first incident was reported at 3:15 a.m., near the intersection of North Hawkins Avenue and Kingsley Street. A victim told police that he was riding his bike, when suspects approached him, pointed a gun and demanded his belongings. The victim gave up his cellphone and guitar case before the suspect left in a green Honda Civic.
The second incident took place at 4 a.m. at the intersection of Grace Avenue and Peckham Street. A victim tells police suspects took her purse at gunpoint.
The third reported robbery happened in the 600 block of West Market Street, where a victim said he was approached for his backpack. He said the suspects pointed something at him during the incident at 4:10 a.m.
Following the third incident, officers say they spotted the green vehicle described. When they attempted to pull the car over, three suspects got out of the vehicle to run away. Officers caught up with two of the suspects after a foot chase.
The third suspect was taken into custody Monday morning. The fourth suspect turned himself in to detectives Tuesday morning.
"The vehicle used during the robberies was reported stolen out of West Akron," Lt. Rick Edwards said.
All four are charged with two counts of aggravated robbery.
