Suspect in armed robbery sought; 2 caught

Two juvenile suspects were caught and a third suspect got away after the robbery of a man and an attempted robbery of a restaurant, police said. Sgt. Chris West of the South Precinct gave this account of the events that occurred Thursday night: Shortly before midnight, three suspects who had two weapons tried unsuccessfully to rob the Wingstop restaurant in Antioch. They were not able to get inside the door. Soon after that, a couple of miles or so away on Crossings Boulevard, a man was robbed of his wallet. On Bell Road police got behind a gold car matching the description of the suspects' car in both incidents, and three men bailed out and ran away. Two of the suspects were caught. The third suspect was not apprehended in a search that involved the canine unit. The suspect was last seen at the Willow Pointe apartment complex off Bell Road. Police do not have a detailed description of him. No one was injured in the incidents. — LEIGH RAY (Tennessean)
