EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Three teenagers have been arrested after what police are calling a Saturday morning “crime spree.”

A 17-year-old boy, 17-year-old girl and 14-year-old boy have all been identified as suspects and have been detained while the investigation continues.

Police say the teenagers participated in a series of crimes starting a little after 1 a.m. Saturday and continuing until 10 a.m. at various locations around the city.

A police detective who was working the Black History Month Parade along Piedras Street was flagged down by two citizens and told about a man threatening people inside the Coconuts Bar & Grill at 816 N. Piedras.

When the detective went inside, witnesses pointed the detective to some teenagers. Police say two teenagers were ordered to the ground,  and backup units assisted in taking them into custody.

A subsequent investigation showed that the teens had been involved in a series of “violent crimes” around El Paso,  police said.

At  1:09 a.m.,  the first reported crime was an aggravated robbery in a parking lot at 1881 Saul Kleinfeld. Police say a 27-year-old man was beaten, threatened with a handgun and robbed. The victim received minor injuries, according to police.

At 2:26 a.m, the two male suspects robbed a Valero gas station at 2300 Zaragoza, according to police. Police say the two male teens stole items from the business and threatened the clerk  with a handgun.

At 6:22 a.m.,  the pair were allegedly involved in another aggravated robbery at a DK Convenience Store at 1733  Brown. During this incident, police say they threatened the clerk with a handgun and demanded money. They also stole beer and other items from the store.

The investigation continues. Police say they will provide updates when more information becomes available,  including what the teenagers will be charged with.
