The chief said the man then reportedly displayed a handgun and told her he wanted money and took the woman’s purse. He then left in a vehicle.

The woman went back inside the store and called police. She provided a description of the man and the vehicle, and the officer relayed the information to other officers so they could be on the lookout.

An officer saw a vehicle on South Greenwood that matched the description provided by the woman. Bowen said the officer made a traffic stop and questioned the people inside, all of whom, he said, gave conflicting stories.

One of the individuals inside the vehicle reportedly matched the description of the suspect. Authorities also found two handguns inside the vehicle.

Detectives were summoned who took over the investigation. Logue was arrested and charged in the incident. The victim’s property was also recovered.

Bowen said the suspect was wearing gang colors and had a tattoo that said Gangster Disciples.

"We’re so fortunate to get this person off the streets," Bowen said.

He praised his officers for getting the information from the woman and getting it out to other officers on patrol which led to the quick arrest of the suspect.

He said the other three individuals in the car with the suspect at the time they were stopped by the officer may also face charges although none have been filed as of yet.
