PARMA, OH (WOIO) -

Three men have been arrested for two bar robberies in Parma.  The suspects are being held at the Parma City Jail.  Parma Police tell our Denise Zarrella that the arrests were a result of tips received in part from 19 Action News viewers.  

The suspects' names will not be released until they have been formally charged on Monday.

Detectives believe that the second robbery, which occurred late Thursday is connected to a robbery at a different bar that happened early Wednesday morning.

Two patrons were robbed at the Number One Lounge on Ridge Road on Thursday. According to police, armed with handguns, two masked men entered the business and struck two customers across the head with a gun. 

The suspects then ordered the customers to the floor and robbed them of their cell phones and cash.

And two days ago, on Wednesday morning, a suspect entered Piffels Bar, also on Ridge Road and shot one of the customers. The victim is still in critical condition at Metro. Police say at least four others were also hurt when they were pistol whipped.  

The suspects also stole money from the bar and the customers before fleeing. 

Police also tell 19 Action News that they are working with Independence Police to see if these suspects are the one's involved in a recent robbery at Harry's Steakhouse.
