Once the suspects fled the store, Buffalo police officers were helped significantly when Air One spotted them from above.

Within minutes, Captain David Stabler, Lt. Randy Ammerman and Officer Derrick Floyd apprehended one suspect near East Delavan and Sheridan Avenue. A second suspect was apprehended by Officer Sollie Boone nearby.

Arrested and charged with  1st degree robbery were: 22 year old Zontail Warren of Buffalo and 20 year old Cortez Foster of Buffalo.
