Police have arrested three teens suspected in a string of robberies in the University District, according to a Seattle Police Department news release.

Investigators say that about 3 a.m. Sunday, the three 18-year-old male suspects robbed six people in the University District, demanding at knife point that the victims hand over their wallets and cellphones.

In one case, the suspects demanded a man’s shoes before fleeing the scene in a silver Nissan SUV, police say.

The suspects were taken into custody after University of Washington and Seattle police stopped their vehicle near Northeast 45th Street and University Way.
