Four people were arrested following an armed holdup and police chase early Friday in the North Side.The holdup occurred at 2:30 a.m. at the 7-Eleven on Western Avenue when at least one gunman robbed the store and took off in a vehicle with several occupants, Pittsburgh police spokeswoman Diane Richard said.

Police chased the vehicle to a dead end on Sandusky Street where a passenger, Asseeme Harris, 42, ran and was caught by an officer who used a Taser on him because police suspected he had a weapon, Richard said. A handgun was found under the passenger seat, she said. Store employees identified Harris as one of the robbers, Richard said.

The driver of the vehicle, Alphonso Harris, 30, was charged with robbery, as was another passenger, Alissa Joseph, 29, who also was charged with carrying a firearm without a license. A third passenger, Brandy Ulizzi, 28, was arrested on an outstanding bench warrant. Addresses were not available for those arrested.
