Four people suspected of robbing a 7-Eleven in Arleta were in custody Thursday morning after a police pursuit.

The Los Angeles Police Department received a 911 call at about 4:45 a.m. of a robbery in the 2200 block of Sherman Way.

The suspects were seen getting into a black Honda and driving northbound, according to authorities.

LAPD officers immediately tailed the vehicle, which led to a chase from Canoga Park to Sun Valley.


At one point, the driver of the Honda stopped near the intersection of the Golden State Freeway and the Hollywood Freeway, Officer Drake Madison told City News Service.

Two suspects ran from the car and through a pedestrian tunnel under the Golden State Freeway and a perimeter was set to find them, according to Madison.

Four suspects were taken into custody. No injuries were reported.
