CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -

A man and a woman were taken into custody just after noon Wednesday in connection with an armed robbery that took place at the Comfort Suites near Ennis Joslin and SPID.

The robbery happened just before noon inside of the hotel. According to a Ben Rodriguez, a witness at the scene, the male suspect approached him and said that he thought somebody was being robbed. Something didn't sit well with Rodriguez, so he questioned the suspect. That's when he noticed that the suspect was carrying a gun.

"I asked him if he had a gun, so I backed up and that's when he started running," Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez tackled the suspect just before police arrived on the scene.

"They just swarmed him, and it's all good," Rodriguez said.

Police arrested the male suspect, along with the female suspect, who was detained shortly after.
