ST. LOUIS (KMOV) – Police say four men were arrested after they allegedly went over to three friends’ home to watch a sporting event, and then robbed them on Friday

Tyrone Harris, 21, James Montgomery, 22, Adrion Bonner, 21, and Coreyon Blanks, 21, are all in custody.

According to police, three 23-year-old men invited the suspects to their home in the 7800 block of Germania to watch a game.

After they arrived, the suspect went inside the home. That’s when two of the men took out handguns and announced a robbery.

Police said the suspects took the victims’ ID’s, credit cards, cash and a 55-inch television.

Authorities said they drove away with the getaway vehicle’s rear-door open because the TV would not fit.

Police said they saw the suspect’s vehicle on Interstate 55 and followed it until it got stuck in traffic at the entrance to the Poplar Street Bridge.

Two suspects were immediately taken into custody. The other suspects attempted to run away on foot, but were eventually captured by officers.

All of the stolen property was recovered at the scene, along with the suspects’ guns.
