Phenix City police have arrested four men suspected of robbing a Columbus woman Friday night.

Joshua Jones, Bryant Dwayne Jones and Joseph Russaw of Clayton, Ala. and Jesse Lee Herring Jr., of Dothan, Ala., were charged with robbery in the 1st degree, after police said they robbed Keisha Allen in the parking lot of the Phenix City Wal-mart at around 10 p.m.

According to a police report, Allen was approaching her vehicle when four men jumped out of a vehicle parked next to hers.

She told police one man pointed a gun at her and demanded she give him everything.

She gave him her pocketbook. The suspects then re-entered the vehicle and left the area.

The four suspects were apprehended about an hour later at the Subway on the Highway 280 Bypass, Capt. Frank Ivey said.

Some of Allen's belongings were recovered, but no weapon was found.

Joshua Jones, 19, Bryant Dwayne Jones, 20, Russaw, 23, and Herring, 24, were transported to the Russell County Jail.
