DENVER - Police were able to arrest three teen robbery suspects in the area of West Second Avenue and Perry Street in Denver after a high-speed chase. Two teens are still on the loose.

According to Denver Police, the teens robbed an Englewood pawn shop and a Denver bar before robbing a woman at East Sixth Avenue and Corona Street.

Police were able to track the woman's stolen cellphone to the area of Federal and Alameda boulevards.

When police confronted the teens, they took off in a stolen maroon Chevy SUV.

The teens took police on a high-speed chase through Denver, Lakewood and back into Denver where they crashed the SUV at West Second Avenue and Perry Street.

Police say they have not heard of any injuries at this time.

A few area schools were on lockdown during the investigation, but those lockdowns were later lifted. Barnum, Newlon and Eagleton elementary schools were affected.

Exact suspect descriptions are unknown at this time.

Two suspects are still at large. Three suspects were taken into custody.

Reportedly, one of the teens had a gun in his possession, but it is unknown at this time whether the weapon was recovered.

The Denver Police Public Information Officer John White said it was good police captured the three teens when they did because their crimes were clearly "escalating."
