OKLAHOMA CITY - A violent crime spree ends with two teenage suspects behind bars.

Striking first at the Belle Isle Wal-Mart, then at 7-11 on south Penn, again at a home on Georgia and finally at the Classen Curve.

Three suspects committed four crimes in just a few hours.

"I'm glad I didn't come face to face with them because I don't know what they would have done," said Shirley Sanders.

Shirley says two of the suspects forced open her back door with Shirley inside.

"It sounded like someone was trying to see if the door was unlocked and then I heard a thud and they were trying to get in the door," said Sanders.

Before police could arrive the suspects sped away in a blue Dodge truck.

That crime came after the suspects carjacked a victim in the Wal-Mart parking lot and stole his truck.

Police say that truck was then used in an overnight robbery at 7-11 on south Penn.

That victim got hit in the head.

"He didn't get anything so I thought that honestly to save his pride he had to do something, so he pistol whipped me," said the victim who asked to be called only by her last name Harper.

Two of the three suspects were reportedly wearing superhero masks, one Batman and the other Captain America.

"All of them were wearing hoodies and the two males wearing superhero masks. She says one of them pistol whipped her and left her with some injuries to her head and face,” said Sgt. Jennifer Wardlow with the Oklahoma City Police Department.

After the robbery at the Classen Curve, police found the stolen blue truck at 7-11 on north Western.

Two teens, a 15-year-old and 17-year-old were arrested.

Police also recovered a gun on scene.

"I'm thankful they got caught," said Harper. "It was emotional."

"I think anything that someone covers their face with is frightening. If you can't see their face and their expressions, it's frightening,” said Colleen King.

Police say the third suspect is still on the loose.

There is not a good description for him at this time.

Anyone with information should contact Crime Stoppers at (405)235-7300.
