Manhunt for 2 Armed Robbers in Miami

A large perimeter was set in a Miami neighborhood Wednesday evening as police searched for two armed robbers behind a purse snatching.

Officers tried to pull over the suspects after their Toyota SUV was spotted, but the dangerous duo bailed out at the intersection of Northeast 94th Street and 2nd Avenue.

Two women who were also in the SUV were taken into custody for questioning.

"We're trying to get info as to who these women are and what their relationship is to the two men that bailed from officers," said Kenia Fallat, Miami Police spokeswoman.

Police were initially called to a purse snatching on Northwest 71st Street and 7th Avenue.

A woman was pushed to the ground when the robbers approached her and stole her purse at gunpoint.

SWAT team and K-9 units were searching for the two suspects.

No other information was released.
