SAINT BERNARD, OH (FOX19) - Two men were arrested Thursday morning after a robbery and chase in St. Bernard.

Police say a victim approached them just after 5 a.m. saying that he had just been robbed at gunpoint while walking in the 5400 block of Vine St.

The victim stated that the suspects drove up next to him, pointed a gun at him and then got out of the car and held him at gunpoint while robbing him.

The victim provided police with good descriptions of the suspects and their vehicle.

The suspect car was then located driving on Vine Street near Spring Grove Avenue. When officers tried to initiate a traffic stop, the car refused to top and a short vehicle pursuit ensued, ending on Albert St. near East Mitchell. Three suspects exited the vehicle and fled.

Officers were able to track two of the three suspects who were arrested: DuJuan Patton, 20, and a 15-year-old black male. The juvenile suspect had to be tased.

Cincinnati Police Canine tracked the third suspect, however, after 2.5 hours, the track was lost. The third suspect is still at large and police are following up on known leads.

Officers found other stolen items in the car that were taken from cars on the street and we are working with other agencies/detectives to get that property returned to those victims.

The suspects have been charged with aggravated robbery, felony flee and eluding, resisting arrest, obstructing official business, and receiving stolen property.
