Tacoma police arrested three juveniles and a man Wednesday night after they allegedly robbed a group walking down a South Tacoma street.

The four victims told officers they were walking in the 6200 block of South Tyler Street about 9:15 p.m. when they were approached by four young men. The suspects implied they had a weapon and stole cell phones, two wallets, an iPod and a pizza from the victims, police reported.

The suspects then got into a vehicle and left the scene. The victims spotted the getaway vehicle’s license plate number and provided that to responding Tacoma police officers, police reported.

Officers spotted the suspects’ vehicle and conducted a high-risk stop. The four occupants were taken into custody without incident, police reported.

The victims positively identified the vehicles’ occupants as the robbers. Officers also found the victims’ stolen items in the suspects’ vehicle, police reported.

Three of the suspects were juveniles and were booked into Remann Hall juvenile jail on suspicion of robbery. The fourth – an adult – was booked into Pierce County Jail on suspicion of first-degree robbery.
