CLEVELAND -- Stealing cars and robbing people at gunpoint are some of the crimes that have been happening over the last few days on the city's east side.

One of those crimes happened on the campus of Case Western Reserve University and in that case the victim was a student.

Cleveland Police are glad that two of the juvenile suspects are off the streets Saturday night, but tell Fox 8 they are still looking for two more.

People in the area are also concerned about the recent crimes.

The most recent robbery happened in the 3000 block of East 116th Street in Cleveland, Friday night.

Police explain two of the four suspects took off with a female victim's 2009 white Mercury Milan.

The two juveniles in a stolen Ford Escape were arrested around 1:00 a.m. Saturday after a short chase that ended in the Wade Oval area.

Cleveland police are asking for help from the public to bring the other two suspects in because these have been violent felonies.

"Policing is a partnership between the officers and the community," said Sergeant Jennifer Ciaccia, of the Cleveland Police Department.

"It just makes me feel I have to be looking behind my back and watching more," said Lavonna Evans, who was walking on CWRU's campus, Saturday.

Speaking of CWRU, police tell Fox 8 that a robbery that happened there on March 3rd involving two teenage suspects, has not been officially connected to these other recent crimes. In that situation, two women were robbed of items like their purses and credit cards, but no weapon or vehicle was used in that crime.
