PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Two men are in custody following a robbery at a Lawrenceville business Friday evening.

The incident happened in the 4000-block of Penn Avenue at the Penn Gold and Silver Exchange.

One of the suspects reportedly had a hand gun.

Officials say they got away with cash and jewelry.

But police arrested both suspects a short time later.

“We had a foot chase and we set up a perimeter,” said Commander Timothy O’Connor, of Pittsburgh Police. “We were able to apprehend both about a block or two from Children’s Hospital.”

The stolen items were found at 42nd Street and Garden Way.

The identities of the suspects have not been released.
