Pursuit for armed robbers comes to an end in Delaware County

A police pursuit of two armed robbery suspects ended with the men arrested near Philadelphia International Airport Thursday evening.

State Police were chasing the suspects, wanted for an armed robbery in New Castle, Delaware when the vehicle they were driving veered off the roadway into a grassy median near I-95 and Route 420 around 8:30.

The chase primarily traveled along northbound I-95 through Marcus Hook, Chester, Prospect Park, Essington, Ridley Park and into Tinicum.

Police say the suspects’ black Mercedes sustained a flat tire as they exited I-95 at exit 291, forcing the suspects to flee on foot. 

One of the two men was apprehended in the economy lot; the other was taken into custody nearby.
