The Sacramento Police Department is searching for suspects involved in an armed robbery reported to officers Saturday afternoon in a South Natomas neighborhood, said Officer Linda Matthew, a department spokeswoman.

Police set up a perimeter at Westward Way and Bridgeford Drive and had one person detained Saturday afternoon, according to Matthew.

Officers went to the neighborhood after a caller phoned police about 1:15 p.m. and “said he was following robbery suspects,” Matthew said. She did not know if the person who called police was a victim or a witness to the alleged robbery. The suspects were believed to be armed with a handgun, she said.

Matthew advised neighbors to call police if they saw anything suspicious. She did not have a description of the suspects.
