Officers in the area saw two males matching the description of the suspects and chased them before arresting one, Greene said.
At 3:45 a.m. today, a woman was walking in the 1700 block of Rodgers Street when a burgundy vehicle pulled up beside her and a black male got out, brandished a gun and took the victim’s jewelry, wallet and shoes, Greene said.
