SAN DIEGO Three people were arrested on suspicion of armed robbery Thursday morning after they led officers on a pursuit through city streets that ended as they began to drive the wrong way on a freeway off-ramp.
Two men bailed out of a Toyota Camry shortly after 6 a.m. on the Home Avenue off-ramp from eastbound state Route 94 in Mount Hope and officers found them moments later hiding in some bushes, San Diego police Sgt. Kerry Tom said.

A woman stayed behind in the car and was taken into custody without incident.
Police also found a shotgun in the car, Tom said.

Just before 5:30 a.m., a man armed with a shotgun went into the Moca Salsa Mexican restaurant on University Avenue at College Avenue in Rolando Park and fled after employees handed over cash.

About 15 minutes later, a 7-Eleven on El Cajon Boulevard near 47th Street in Talmadge was robbed by a man armed with a shotgun, Tom said.

A car matching the description of the robber's car was spotted minutes later at Euclid Avenue and SR-94, Tom said. Officers chased the car for about 10 minutes until the men bailed out after stopping on the ramp.

No one was hurt in the pursuit or the robberies. The Home Avenue ramp was closed while officers investigated.
