TULSA, OK -- Four teens have been arrested on complaints of armed robbery after several victims were targeted at a Tulsa home.

Ecequiel Rojas, Ivan Sosa and another friend were working in a garage at a home in the 7400 block of East Third Street on Thursday night.

They were replacing the water pump on a car when suddenly a handgun was pointed at them.

"They said ‘Put your hands up and give me the money,'" Rojas said.

The victims thought at first it was a joke but quickly realized it was much more serious.

In only a few minutes, the robbers took $800 from the three men. They ran from the home and got into a gray car, Rojas said.

But they didn't get far. After the three men got over the shock, they got upset and decided to find the robbers' getaway vehicle.

The victims looked all over the neighborhood and almost gave up. But then they noticed the suspects outside the Wal-Mart at Admiral Place and Memorial Road.

The men got close enough to get a tag number and then stopped a police officer. The four teenagers were arrested.

The victims hope to get some of their cash and jewelry returned.
