PANTEGO (AP) – Police in Pantego say three suspects have been caught and a fourth is sought over a Halloween eve party robbery.
Police Chief Joel McKinney says the three suspects were captured Wednesday night at an apartment complex. Names of the teens, who are expected to face robbery charges, were not immediately released.
KXAS-TV reported Thursday that the suspects are believed to be about 17 years old.
Police say a father who arrived to pick up a guest at Saturday night’s gathering was beaten by the costumed suspects after walking in and realizing the partygoers were being robbed. McKinney says about 30 students, mainly from Arlington High School, were at the party.
Police say two of the suspects had guns.
