NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two people are now under arrest in connection with 15 gas station robberies in Queens and Nassau County.

Police initially tried to pull the suspects over at around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday as they drove on Northern Boulevard, but the men ditched their car and took off on foot, running into Kissena Park.

Police called out the K-9 unit and launched a manhunt. Both suspects were eventually captured.
