Police are reminding the public to stay aware as they leave the bank after two jugging incidents this week in Houston.
Jugging is when robbers follow customers from a bank and try to rob them of their cash.
In a case on Wednesday, police said a suspect tried hiding in a day care in northwest Houston.
Houston police said three suspects followed a person home in the 10700 block of Ranchstone.

Thankfully, officers were able to stop the suspects before they approached their victim. Officers arrested two of the suspects, while the third one ran into a day care to get away.
The suspect who took off on foot was eventually taken into custody with the assistance of K-9s and police helicopters.
No one was hurt, but police said it is a good reminder to be extra careful and pay attention to anyone following you after you leave the bank.
If you feel like you are being followed, police say you should keep driving and call 911.
