Two teens and a man are in police custody and facing felony charges after they robbed a clerk at gunpoint at High Street Foods, 704 High St., at 8:13 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11, according to a press release by the Racine Police Department.

Police arrested two of the suspects after they invaded a nearby home. The two 17-year-old boys are in police custody and facing charges of armed robbery, resisting and obstructing an officer are being submitted to the Racine County District Attorney’s Office.

Racine Police arrested Marcel Byers, 21, of Racine, for armed robbery, resisting and obstructing an officer, trespassing, and bail jumping after  he was found hiding on a roof at Rojo’s Tavern, 1317 Yout St.

The three went into High Street Foods and one of the suspects displayed a handgun as the other two demanded cash from a clerk inside the store. Fleeing the area, police searched the area and a second shift officer saw people matching the description of the suspects. The three ran away from the officer.

The two 17-year-old boys forced their way inside a home in the 1300 block of Yout St. Police surrounded the home and made contact with the suspects inside the home. However, the resident inside the home forced the boys out of the home, according to a press release by the Racine Police Department.
