Police in Santa Rosa arrested four alleged gang members who are believed to have committed an gang-related armed robbery Sunday afternoon. Officers responded to a report of an armed robbery in front of a 7-Eleven, located at 1401 Maple Ave., at about 4:10 p.m., police said. When officers arrived, they located an uninjured 16-year-old victim of the crime, according to police. The victim said he was approached by four males in front of the 7-Eleven, police said.
One of the four suspects was armed with a stun gun, another displayed an unknown object that may have been a handgun in his waistband, and they demanded money, police said.
