Five people suspected of robbing a Santa Clara bingo hall are under arrest.

Police say the suspects are all part of a robbery crew that targeted bingo hall employees and players.

The Santa Clara Aquamaids Bingo Hall had hired a security guard. Police believe the suspects robbed the hall last month and on Wednesday, that's when they were caught.

In one of the robberies, a 78-year-old woman was hit on the head several times with a handgun until she surrendered her purse.
