Police apprehend Historic Filipinotown car robbery suspects

Three suspects connected to a strong-arm car robbery were in custody this morning  after police blocked off streets near Beverly Boulevard and Union Avenue in Historic Filipinotown for about two hours as they conducted a search.  The incident began about a block away at 3:14 a.m. in the 1600 block of Rockwood Avenue when a man reported that he had been overpowered by three males as he was getting into his white Volvo, reports Lt. Wes Buhrmester with the Rampart Division.  The suspects drove off with the vehicle, which police saw about an hour later. They pursued it during a brief chase that ended at Beverly and Union, where a 17-year-old suspect was apprehended but two others got away.  Officers called in a K-9 unit and a police helicopter to assist in the search, which ended at about 6 a.m. with the two other suspects in custody.
