CHATTANOOGA (WRCB)--  Four suspects are behind bars for two morning robberies.

Police Sergeant Jerri Weary says the incidents happened around 11:30 Thursday morning.

Weary says two suspects approached a man on East 17th Street with a long gun. The victim avoided the robbery by running away.

A short time later, Weary says another man was approached by two suspects with a long gun on 6th Avenue, who demanded his wallet. The man immediately handed it over and the suspects fled.

Police working in the area spotted the suspect vehicle near East 29th Street. Weary says the four suspects crashed into a parked car as police attempted to pull them over.

Police arrested 21-year-old Kendra Adair who was the getaway driver, 23-year-old Dietrick Benn, 20-year-old Charleston Beard and a 14-year-old juvenile.

Each are charged with aggravated robbery and aggravated assault in the two cases.

All victims in the incidents were uninjured.
