TULSA, OK -- TULSA, OK -- Five people were taken into custody after an armed robbery which led to a foot chase overnight.

The incident began at 9:30 p.m. Monday, when a man flagged down a Tulsa Police officer and told him he had been robbed by five people at 21st and 129th East Avenue. Two of the suspects had guns.

The victim gave police a vehicle description and about an hour later, a police officer spotted a car matching that description, driving without its lights on.
