Harker Heights PD officers were called Friday night, just after 11:15 p.m., to the 900 block of Rattlesnake Rd. about an aggravated robbery.

The reported victim told responding officers that two men robbed him at gunpoint of two pairs of shoes and a cell phone. The victim was not hurt. Police were told the robbers left in an unknown make and model black 4-door vehicle.

Copperas Cove police found the two suspects, along with three others, in the vehicle a short time later. Officers recovered the stolen items and the five people in the vehicle were arrested.
