OCEAN CITY, Md.- Ocean City police have arrested four suspects in connection with an armed robbery that occurred earlier this week on 12th Street.

Police said the incident occurred shortly after 2 a.m. Monday, when two people walking down the street were held up at gunpoint by a group of four males.

Police broadcast a description of the suspects and their vehicle and were able to stop the suspects' vehicle on 12th Street a short time after the initial lookout. The vehicle was occupied by four males, who were all detained until the victims were brought to the stop.

According to police, the victims positively identified the suspects as the persons who had committed the armed robbery. Police said the suspects were identified as: Dominique LA Paul Pratt, 20, of Waldorf, Md., Derrell Levon Prince, 19, of Waldorf, Md., and John Riley, 23, of Washington, D.C.
