Detroit — Police have arrested four teenage boys — including one as young as 14 — who fled from officers in a stolen car after robbing three people at gunpoint on the city’s east side early Friday morning.

According to the Detroit Police Department, at about 8:40 a.m., officers from the Ninth Precinct located four teenagers riding in a stolen Chrysler 300.

The four fled when officers activated their lights and a short chase ensued before the four were arrested. Police found a handgun inside the vehicle.

According to police, the four suspects include two 17-year-olds, one 15-year-old and a 14-year-old.

Police said the first robbery occurred at E. Seven Mile and Gratiot at 5:50 a.m. when the suspects allegedly robbed a 13-year-old boy of money, headphones and his lunch as he waited at a bus stop.

The second incident took place at Troester/Hayes at 6 a.m. when the suspects allegedly asked a 54-year-old man if he had a light. When he said he didn’t, the suspects told him to give up his money, which he also didn’t have.

The third robbery occurred at 8 a.m. at Courville and Stratman when the suspects allegedly pulled up to a 16-year-old boy and demanded his money. They made off with $8.

No one was injured in the incidents.
