Reportedly, one of the victims of the crimes was a fifty-two-year-old man, who was held by the perpetrators at gunpoint. However, he was able to run away.
While police were investigating the incident, three more robberies took place on pedestrians which weren’t far from the original crime.
The victims described the suspects similarly as well as their car – a dark Kia holding just two people. Just a few moments later, police identified the vehicle with a bystander who said they recognized the Kia.
Celebrity Insider reported yesterday that the police pulled them over in a car, when in fact, the authorities including a SWAT team went to their home and arrested them there. Stolen property was found thereupon the police’s arrival.
