Three people were captured at the Rio Hotel Tuesday morning after a crime spree police say started with a violent robbery at a Subway restaurant in the southwest part of the valley.
Just before 4:30 a.m., two men and a woman ordered food at the Subway at 7040 S. Durango, but then left without paying, according to Metro Lt. David Gordon. The clerk told police he chased the trio into the parking lot, where they beat him up, stole his car, and took off. The victim was not seriously injured and did not require hospital treatment.
Police tracked the group and the stolen car to the Rio Hotel at Flamingo and Valley View. Rio security officers detained the woman and one man. After a brief chase around the resort property, police took the third suspect into custody.
