SAN ANTONIO – Three teenage girls are in custody after a Clark High School student was robbed near the campus, according to the San Antonio Police Department.

Police said the male student was robbed at knifepoint just after 8 a.m. Thursday at De Zavala Road and Red Maple Wood on the city’s North Side. The victim then walked to a bakery in the 5000 block of De Zavala Road to call for help.

An officer at the scene injured his knee when he wrestled one suspect to the ground and a second suspect jumped on him. A passerby helped pull the suspect off the officer, police said.

The three suspects, including two 16-year-olds and one 18-year-old, are now in custody.

Officers found the knife used and recovered most of the victim’s belongings, according to SAPD. They are still looking for his phone.
