Police followed the suspects, two African American men, to that Central Phoenix neighborhood. The suspects dumped the vehicle they were in and took off on foot.

Officers, with the help of K-9 units, spent the early  morning hours scouring the area, eventually catching the two suspects.

Investigators said it's possible that the suspects in custody are connected to a second armed robbery that happened either very early this morning or late last night.
