Three robbery suspects who tried to elude police by boarding a South Shore train heading to Chicago were taken into custody Wednesday afternoon at the Portage/Ogden Dunes station.

Northern Indiana Commuter Transportation District Police Chief Bob Byrd said he received a call that suspects in a convenience store robbery in South Bend had boarded the westbound train. Officers from Portage and Ogden Dunes were dispatched to the station to handle the incident.

A witness on the train said two men and a woman were handcuffed and led off the train by a large contingent of police.

The suspects were transported back to South Bend, Byrd said.
