Windsor police have arrested three suspects after several armed robberies in the city.
A 53-year-old Chinese food delivery man called police on Tuesday at 2:20 a.m. for an alleged armed robbery in the 1700 block of Cadillac Road.
Police say the delivery driver saw two males seated on the front porch of an address that he was delivering an order of food. He described the suspects as a black male and a white male.
The victim gave the bags of food and was waiting to get paid when one of the suspects allegedly pulled out a black handgun, pointed it him and a demanded all of his cash.
The victim told police the other suspect pulled out a metal expandable baton and struck him, making him lose consciousness for several minutes.
Police say the victim returned to his vehicle and called 911. He then drove around the area looking for the suspects.
Officers met up with the victim near Albert Road and Seminole Street.
As officers were dealing with the victim, they received information about a witness who saw three suspicious males enter a residence in the 1500 block of Albert Road.
The homeowner was removing the males when police got there. Police say the homeowner also turned over bags of Chinese food and a bag containing a handgun and baton, indicating that the three had brought the items to his house.
All three were placed under arrest for robbery.
The delivery man was taken to hospital. He suffered a laceration to his head and a possible broken finger from being struck with the baton.
Police say they have confirmed that two of the suspects, aged 16 and 17, were also involved in a robbery at a Shoppers Drug Mart. The third male arrested at the Albert Road address is 20 years of age.
Police were called to the Shoppers in the 2100 block of Ottawa Street at 9 p.m. Two suspects allegedly went to the pharmacy counter and handed an employee a note indicating they had a gun and asking for narcotics.
No weapon was seen. The employee gave the note to the pharmacist on duty and the suspects left the store with nothing.
Officers are also investigating the same two suspects in relation to a pizza delivery robbery in the 1600 block of St. Luke Road that was reported on Jan. 15.
