Four robbers fled from the scene in a car, and a Sheriff’s deputy later spotted the vehicle before it crashed off the exit ramp at I-75 and Edwin C. Moses Boulevard.

Three occupants were taken into custody, including the juvenile, while three other suspects inside the car fled from the crash.

Friday, the Montgomery County Grand Jury indicted 17-year-old Justin Askew on two counts of aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon and two counts of kidnapping.
