NEW YORK — Police in Williamsburg arrested four people suspected of being involved in a robbery in Manhattan after they fled to Brooklyn.

After a T-Mobile store located at 350 East 14th Street in Manhattan was robbed, the suspects fled in a vehicle over the Williamsburg Bridge, and a high speed chase by the NYPD ensued. A police helicopter which was ordered by the officers had to be cancelled as the weather did not permit it to take off and join the chase.

The suspects vehicle was found abandoned near Franklin Avenue and Flushing Avenue. NYPD followed them while being assisted by Shomrim and tips called in by the community. Some of the suspects ran in the direction of the 34th Battalion Fire House located at 850 Bedford Avenue (Engine Company 209 and Ladder Company 102), where two suspects were arrested on the roof of the building. The other two suspects were arrested at 65 Franklin Avenue.

The police recovered two guns during the arrests.
