Four men suspected of robbing the AT&T store at 6027 Kirby Drive were captured without incident after they fled and scattered into a West University residential neighborhood Tuesday afternoon (Feb. 11).
The robbery, at the entrance to Rice Village on the corner of Rice Boulevard and Kirby, was reported at 1:43 p.m., with four men involved and a description a gray Ford Taurus as a getaway vehicle.
Shortly afterward, West University police located a vehicle matching that description near University Boulevard and Wakeforest and took the driver into custody. The three other men took off on foot — one all in gray clothing, another in a red hoodie — with officers from West University, Houston and Bellaire in pursuit.
The search focused on the neighborhood around Duke and Vanderbilt, and the public was asked to avoid the area.
West U police reported all were in custody by 3 p.m.
