PEARLAND -- It was a terrifying night for two Pearland women who were robbed late Tuesday in the Towne Center parking lot.

Nicole Lou and Christina Chan were walking home to their apartment complex when two men jumped out of a Jeep Cherokee.

The guys jumped out and I was going to run, said Nicole Lou. And one of them pointed a gun to my face and another tackles my friend. I was going to run, but my friend was pushed to the floor.

The four suspects stole their purses.

I was in the bushes. Someone had grabbed me and threw me into the bushes. I wouldn t give up my iPhone, said Chan.

The four men took offwith the purses and the victims called 911.

Before I had finished giving them my statement, they had already caught them, Lou said.

Pearland police officers spotted the SUV going northbound on 288 and pulled them over.

Donte Filmore, Kendrick Lewis, Jeremy Day and Kyndric Richardson were all charged with two counts of aggravated robbery. They are each being held on $180,000 bond.

The suspects are now being looked at for other unsolved robberies in the Pearland area.
