SPOKANE, Wash. -

UPDATE: Thanks to a citizen's tip, Spokane police arrested three teens for the violent robbery of the Rite Aid on North Division less than 24 hours after the crime.

Around 5 p.m. Friday, someone called the police department with information about the suspects. Police found all three of them a short while later, at a house in the 7000 block of North Colton Street. 

Officers arrested 18-year-old Brandon L. Worswick and two other juveniles for robbery and assault charges.

Many times, for whatever reason, security footage of people committing crimes isn't - how to say this politely - the best quality. But earlier this week, we received some pretty clear pictures of some suspects who tried to steal booze and then beat up a customer who tried to intervene. The luck of clear pictures continued on Friday when the Spokane Police Department released photos of two suspects they say stole liquor from a Rite Aid and assaulted the clerk who confronted them. 

The robbery happened late Thursday night at the Rite Aid by Burlington Coat Factory. Witnesses say three suspects walked into the store and stole alcohol. When a clerk confronted them, police say they suspects hit the clerk with various weapons, causing significant, but non-life threatening injuries. The clerk was taken to the hospital for treatment. 

The suspects are described as being white men, in their late teens or early 20s. SPD included photos of two of the suspects, and say the third one was average build and was wearing a grey sweatshirt with blue jeans. 

Anyone with information on who these two suspects might be is asked to call crime check at 509-456 2233.
