Two men who were arrested fleeing a restaurant robbery in South Fort Worth on Thursday morning are suspects in as many as 14 other holdups, police said.

Officers responded to a robbery at the Braum's restaurant in the 7400 block of South Hulen Street at about 7 a.m. and saw the two running out the back door.

After a foot chase, the two were captured about a block away, said Sgt. Kelly Peel.

Shaquille Hunte and Kamron McGruder, both 19, were arrested in connection with the Thursday robbery but more charges are possible, Peel said.

The two are suspected in a robbery spree targeting gas stations and fast-food restaurants that started in January, he said.

Police released dramatic surveillance video of the robbery of another Braum's on Sycamore School Road on Feb. 6. It shows two masked men running in with guns and forcing employees to give them cash.
