TRENDING STORY: Man shot in the back in parking lot of Springfield bar
When the officer arrived, he allegedly observed one suspect in a grey hoodie carrying a white trash bag full of bottles running for the door. The officer chased the suspect but he was able to elude capture.
The officer then saw another suspect, later identified as Boyd, allegedly running for another exit while also carrying a white bag. Police pursued him as well but he was able to get away after jumping a fence. Boyd was later arrested in the Ridgewood neighborhood.
When the officer returned to the scene of the robbery, he found three employees locked in a restroom with their hands tied behind their backs.
“They advised that the suspects tied them up after Mr. Boyd pointed a gun at (one of the women),” the affidavit says.
