Tulsa Police arrest two suspects after a string of armed robberies overnight. 25-year-old Martin Rios and 20-year-old Lydia Davis were taken into custody around midnight. The arrests came after Tulsa Police responded to three armed robbery calls within an hour and a half.

The first robbery was at the Subway restaurant near 19th and Yale, the second at the Taco Bueno in the 2800 block of East 11th Street and the third at the Phillips 66 service station near 51st and Yale.

In all three cases, police say a man with a handgun got away with a bag of cash from the register and then left in a red car driven by a woman.

Tulsa Police officers spotted the vehicle shortly after the third robbery and arrested the pair near 36th and Jamestown.

"We had victims from the robberies come to the scene here, and they were very confident with their identifications that we had the right people," said Tulsa Police Captain Steve Bayles.

Tulsa Police recovered a gun and a bag of cash from the suspect's vehicle.
