PUEBLO — The Pueblo Police Department arrested three juveniles and one 19-year-old early Thursday morning one hour after they received reports of an armed robbery.

PPD said a clerk at a convenience store on South Prairie Avenue was hit in the head by one of the suspects with a pistol.

Two men entered the store around 3:20 a.m. and the clerk described them as Hispanic males, according to police.

One of the suspects wore dark clothes with a blue sweatshirt wrapped around his head.

The other suspect had a gray "ECKO" hoodie on and a blue mask.

About one hour later, an officer saw the suspect vehicle being pushed by four males. Three juveniles and one 19-year-old were taken into custody.

Police said one of the juveniles had a "no-bond warrant for burglary."

There will be a search warrant for the truck and police said the suspects' parents were notified.
