Eighteen-year-old Stephen Alexander Hartley III, a 17-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy were arrested thanks to anonymous tips, according to Portland police. KOIN is not releasing their names because they are juveniles.

Hartley was arrested Feb. 6, the 17-year-old girl was arrested Jan. 29 and the 16-year-old boy was arrested on the day of the robbery. Surveillance photos of Hartley and the 17-year-old were released late last month.

Just after midnight on Jan. 8, a cab driver was robbed at gunpoint in the area of Southeast 157th Avenue and Division Street. The driver was not hurt. The suspects fled before officers got on scene. The 16-year-old was apprehended several hours later.

Hartley was lodged in the Multnomah County Jail on counts of first and second degree robbery, second-degree conspiracy to commit robbery.

The two others were booked into the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Home on similar charges.
