Police say the two suspects first robbed a bank Sunday afternoon in Southington, fleeing from the scene in a red minivan.
The van got a flat tire, and the suspects stopped at a Shell Gas Station. Police were able to catch up with them and arrested one man.
Police say the other suspect stole a white Jeep with a grandmother and her two grandchildren inside.
Police say the suspect later dropped the woman and children off at a commuter lot near Interstate 84. The three were not injured.
