There was a brief struggle and the suspects fled on foot, said Officer Allen Swanson in a news release. The man got in his car and caught up with them a half block away. The suspects returned the money and fled in a vehicle, Mr. Swanson said.
The man pursued the vehicle into East Palo Alto and called 911. Police found the vehicle and arrested the occupants.
Police identified the suspects as Warner Travis, 18, of Menlo Park and Jeffrey Thames, 21, of San Francisco. They were booked into the San Mateo County jail on charges of robbery and conspiracy to commit a crime.
