Police say the suspects left the area in a dark-colored Ford Explorer and that Explorer was spotted by police at State Street and Devils Glen Road.

Officers used stop sticks to try and stop the Explorer, however, with now two flat tires, the Explorer continued until it became disabled.

Police say eight suspects left the Explorer near the intersection of Jersey Ridge Road and East Kimberly Road in Davenport. All suspects, minus the driver, were found and apprehended.
