A man and a woman were arrested after knocking off three convenience stores. 

At 2:48 a.m., the male suspect tried to rob a store near SE 59th and I-35. Police say the store clerk ran away, thwarting the robbery. He fled the scene in a car driven by the female suspect. 

Half an hour later, the male suspect walked into a store near NW 36th and Broadway Extension and demanded money. Held at gunpoint, the clerk complied. 

At about 3:30 a.m., an officer noticed a car parked near another store near Britton and Broadway Extension matching the description of the car from the first two armed robberies. The officer was able to arrest both suspects from the vehicle.

After some investigating, it was discovered that just before the arrests, the male suspect tried to rob that store while armed. The female suspect waited outside in the getaway car. 

Jerome Grandison and Geneva Farmer were arrested in connection to these armed robberies and will be booked into the Oklahoma County Jail.

Police also say a small child was in the car and taken into state custody.
