Three suspects have been arrested after an armed robbery in Superior Saturday.

It happened before 9 p.m. on N. 23rd Street in Superior. Three victims said two adult friends and a juvenile robbed them at gunpoint.

They said the group stopped by their house, and after about 10 minutes, the juvenile suspect pulled out a semi-automatic handgun. They said he held it to the head of one of the victims.

The victims said the juvenile struck one of the victims in the back of the head with the gun. That's when one of the adult suspects started taking wallets, an X box, X box games and the victims' shoes.

The two adult suspects were arrested at a home on the 1200 block of Tower Ave. The juvenile suspect was not located and arrested until Monday afternoon.

The two adult suspects are two males ages 19 and 20. They are both from Superior.

The juvenile suspect is a 16-year-old male from Superior.

Police said all involved knew each other, except for the juvenile.
