San Jose police arrested two men and two teens who were spotted hopping over backyard fences early Thursday in connection with at least two strong-arm robberies that occurred a short time before.
Lt.Chris Monahan said three of the four suspects were arrested near Cropley and Morrill Avenues. The fourth was caught earlier. Two were minors and two were adults. The adults resisted arrest and were bitten by police dogs. The robberies were reported just before 1 a.m.
Officers conducted a perimeter search with the help of K-9 units from Sunnyvale and Santa Clara and discovered the suspects hiding on Baby Ruth Drive, Monahan said.
Police say there were two separate robbery victims and one was an elderly person.
