Police are investigating an Internet meet up that resulted in a  residential robbery in Sunnyvale on Monday. Police have apprehended two of three possible suspects in  connection with a robbery in the 100 block of Florence Street and are  continuing to search for a third suspect.

At approximately 3:40 p.m. Monday, police responded to the report  of a robbery in the 100 block of Florence Street.  Officers witnessed two suspects fleeing the scene on foot.  Police were able to apprehend one suspect immediately, but had to  set up a perimeter and utilize K-9 units to track the second suspect. Police  found the second suspect almost three hours later hiding in the bushes of a  neighboring property.

The third suspect is believed to be a woman and was possibly seen  leaving the area in a vehicle, police said. Sunnyvale police detectives discovered the male victim was  acquainted with the suspect through an Internet contact and had arranged to  meet the female suspect at his residence, police said. When the female suspect arrived at the residence, the two other  suspects accompanied her and carried out the robbery, police said.

The victim was not injured during the incident and all stolen  property has been recovered, police said. Detectives are working on identifying the female suspect and  working with local agencies to see if there have been similar robberies in  the region.
