ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – Police arrested seven teens after two assaults and a robbery were reported within an hour Thursday night.

At 11 p.m., a man was assaulted while riding his bicycle in the 3200 block of Magnolia. The victim told police he noticed a tan minivan riding behind him and one of the passengers pushed him. After being pushed, the victim ran into the back of a parked vehicle and sustained a laceration to his nose.

Less than five minutes later, six suspects approached a man who was sitting inside a parked vehicle at Pestalozzi and Arkansas. The suspects opened the victim’s vehicle door and struck him in the face, according to police. The suspects then reached across the victim, unbuckled his seat belt and pulled him from the vehicle. The victim told police he saw a champaign colored minivan following behind his stolen vehicle.

Roughly 40 minutes later, a tan minivan pulled alongside a man who was riding his bicycle in the 2500 block of Nebraska. The victim said two suspects jumped out of the suspect vehicle and one of them punched him in the face. Both suspects attempted to kick the victim before re-entering the suspect vehicle and driving away. The victim said he noticed several other people inside the suspect vehicle.

Police later arrested the teens.
