Police arrested a suspect in three armed robberies at Center City SEPTA stations.

On Saturday around 2 p.m., an armed man demanded money from a person in the concourse connecting the City Hall and 15th Street stations.  

Hours later, shortly after 9 p.m., an armed man robbed another victim at the 30th Street Station on the Market-Frankford Line. 

Finally, later that night, an armed man held two people at gunpoint at the 30th Street Market Frankford Line station and forced them to withdraw cash from an ATM. The gunman then fled in an unknown direction. 

None of the victims were injured. 

Police took two men into custody who they believe were with the armed robber.

Later Sunday evening, police announced the suspect was in custody. They have not yet revealed his identity or the charges against him.

NBC10 cameras also captured police chasing after and arresting a man near the SEPTA station at Dilworth Park Sunday night. Police have not yet revealed if that arrest was related to the armed robbery arrest.
