COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- Police in Colorado Springs say they've arrested three juveniles connected to a series of armed robberies and attempted carjackings that started late last week.

The spree started last Wednesday when a Kum & Go on Vickers Drive was robbed, police say, and four more convenience stores were robbed throughout the next few days.

Two attempted armed carjackings were also reportedly connected to the group at Pine Bluffs Apartments and Cottonwood Creek Park on Saturday. Police say during the attempted carjackings, the suspects fired a handgun at the victims; nobody was injured, but the vehicles were hit by bullets.

But on Sunday night, officers got a call about a robbery at another Kum & Go on Austin Bluffs Parkway. While searching the area, officers found the suspects and chased them down on foot with the help of a K-9 unit.

Three of the suspects were caught, but a fourth fled and is still on the loose as of Thursday.

Police say a 16-year-old male was arrested for six counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of attempted aggravated robbery, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, and one count of first-degree kidnapping. A second 16-year-old faces five counts of aggravated robbery and one count of first-degree kidnapping.

A 13-year-old girl was arrested for three counts of aggravated robbery, two counts of attempted aggravated robbery, two counts of attempted first-degree murder, and one count of first-degree kidnapping.

The suspects haven't been identified, and no description was given of the fourth suspect.

  1. Such a sad sad world this is becoming.with all the Crimea and hate. Maybe the virus needs to come back but a lot stronger

  2. This is just the beginning. This new police bill will tie the hands of police officers around the state. Such an irresponsible piece of legislation. Somehow all state LE was opted out of this bill because the politicians know that the frivolous lawsuits would have bankrupt the state. They hung the city and county jurisdictions out to dry. New World Order.
