    escape from the robbers?

    I have come across the verb "to escape" being used to escape from a place. Is it right to use it as to escape from a person or a group of people like robbers?

    Thanks in advance

    It depends on what you mean. If you mean that you are trying to escape from people trying to rob you then that is correct.
