Suspects In Senior Citizen Robberies Apprehended

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE 3) -- Police are crediting community tips and surveillance video for helping them catch suspects who were wanted for robberies in southern Jefferson County.

Several older residents recently reported being held at gunpoint and robbed outside their homes. The victims were between the ages of 64 and 90.

Robert Ray, 38, and Angela Rivera, 35, were arrested Saturday after a police chase ended with the suspects crashing their vehicle into a fence and concrete barrier in a parking lot, according to police.

Police began pursuing the suspects after three robberies were reported in the third and seventh divisions, the same areas the previous robberies happened.

"Today, their reign of terror comes to an end," Major Kim Burbank wrote in a post on LMPD's Facebook page. "I could not be more proud of the hard work and relentless effort put forth by my officers in the 7th as well as members from every division and unit on the department."

Ray is charged with eleven counts of robbery, one count of theft by unlawful taking, fleeing and evading police, wanton endangerment, criminal mischief and several traffic violations related to the chase. Rivera is charged with two counts of robbery.
