GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

Two Gulfport men and a teen are charged with armed robbery after they allegedly took a woman's purse at gunpoint Thursday morning.

Gulfport police spokesman Sgt. Damon McDaniel said Jahnmani Javante Burks, 18, Dylan Blake Harveston, 18, and Jomar Alexander Stubbs, 14, walked up behind a woman in the area of Gulf Avenue and 26th Street, put a gun to her head and forced her to turn over the purse before running way.

McDaniel said the woman gave police a description of the suspects, and the search began.

Authorities say they found the trio walking in the area a little bit later. McDaniel said all three suspects were taken into custody after a short foot pursuit, but one of them was taken down by a K9 unit.

McDaniel said Burks was given a $100,000 bond and Harveston was given a $50,000 bond. According to the Harrison County Jail docket, they have not yet bonded out.

Stubbs was given a $50,000 bond. McDaniel said the investigation is ongoing.
