ABILENE, Texas -

Three men have been arrested for allegedly robbing a woman at gunpoint near Wylie Intermediate School.

The three men reportedly pulled out a gun and demanded the woman's purse.

After police were notified, it was Police Chief Stan Standridge, who was on his way home, that spotted the men in their car and pursued them.

"The woman was outside, they pulled up to her, asked her for directions whereupon they then pointed a firearm at her and demanded her purse" Standridge said. "Now, I don't know exactly where they were when this occurred all that information we'll glean from the investigation."

When Standridge spotted the vehicle, he then waited for more units to arrive before they pulled over the suspects on Sayles and Clack.
