White Oak police arrested three of four people wanted in connection with the armed robbery of a Jacks Run Road Wendy’s restaurant Friday night.

The department said officers responded to the robbery in the 2800 block of Jacks Run Road around 9:15 p.m. Friday.

Two men “armed with pistols and wearing face masks entered the business and demanded money while threatening the employees,” police said.

Two women allegedly helped in committing the robbery, police said.

Police said they identified all four suspects within a few hours, but did not release their names.

The suspect police were still searching for is Robert Edward Harper, 45, according to WPXI. He was described as 5 feet, 7 inches tall and 160 pounds. He is known to frequent a residence in the 2200 block of Chalfont Street in Wilkinsburg.

Anyone who sees or has information about Harper’s whereabouts is asked to call White Oak police at 412-672-9726, their local police department or 911.

White Oak police said the two men will be charged with robbery, recklessly endangering another person, and firearms violations.

The women will be charged with criminal conspiracy.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
