ATLANTA -- Atlanta Police officers stumbled upon and ended a robbery in progress near Turner Field at around 10 p.m. Monday.
The officers were patrolling the area after a Braves game when they saw a pedestrian robbery happening near Formwalt Park at the corner of Formwalt Street SW and Ralph David Abernathy Boulevard SW.
When the suspect saw the cops approaching, he ran away, but was quickly captured, according to Atlanta Police spokeswoman Kim Jones.
The victims identified the juvenile suspect as the man who tried to take their cell phones, Jones said.
The suspect was taken to the Metro Regional Youth Detention Center. His name was not released because of his age.
