Riverside armed robbery suspects captured; Cal Baptist University lockdown lifted

Five armed robbery suspects were taken into custody Wednesday night, April 18, after leading police on a pursuit that prompted California Baptist University in Riverside to go on lockdown.
The Riverside Police Department’s helicopter unit said in a tweet at 9:22 p.m. that all the suspects had been taken into custody. Police had been searching for two of the suspects for about an hour after they ran from a car near the CBU campus. Since police didn’t know if the suspects were armed, the campus was placed on lockdown, Officer Ryan Railsback said. The lockdown was lifted by 9:40 p.m.
A SigAlert was issued at 9:17 p.m. warning that the Adams Street on-ramp to the 91 and two lanes of the 91 were closed.
Earlier in the evening, the suspects robbed a business in the Magnolia Center area, Railsback said. When the robbery was reported and officers located their vehicle, a pursuit began, which ended at Adams Street and the 91 Freeway.
Two of the suspects got out of the car and ran away. They were located and taken into custody in about an hour.
Railsback said he had not heard of any injuries.
