ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — Four suspects are in custody following a gunpoint robbery in Henrietta and subsequent car chase that led police to downtown Rochester Thursday afternoon.

At approximately 1:34 p.m., MCSO responded to the report of a gunpoint robbery in the 3100 block of East Henrietta Road—when they arrived—the suspects fled.

Shortly later, a deputy spotted the suspect car in the city and followed the vehicle. The car was pulled over at State and Church Streets in downtown Rochester.

Deputies say there were four occupants—one fled the vehicle, and the other three stayed in the car and were taken in for questioning.

The suspect that fled was later caught on the railroad tracks near Plymouth Ave. RPD, NYSP, and U.S. Marshalls assisted in the search for that individual.

No injuries to law enforcement or suspects were reported during the incident.

All four suspects are in custody and being questioned. There are no charges as of yet.
