Two suspected robbers are behind bars after one of their victims helped police catch them.This all started at condominiums on Reims and Bellerive in southwest Houston around midnight, when two robbers barged into a unit and held up three men.

Police say one of the robbers forced one of the victims into a car and was going to drive him to an ATM, but the victim managed to catch the attention of an officer. That began a chase, during which the suspect jumped out of the vehicle and ran back to the condominium, where his accomplice was.

Officers burst into the unit and after a short struggle, both suspects were arrested. Police say they found a large amount of cash and equipment to make drugs.
