Accordingly, on May 30th, right around 3:30 p.m., Charlotte patrol officers were called to the scene by the victim of a reported robbery on the 300 block of East 7th Street. The victim told the officers that he was just walking down the street when the two young boys walked up to him, punched him in the face and stomach, and then took the man’s cell phone.

On Thursday, May 30, just before 3:30 p.m., patrol officers were dispatched to a robbery from person call for service on the 300 block of E. 7th Street. The victim told the officers he was walking when the duo approached him, punched him, and took his cell phone.

When the victim went to call 911, the robbers ran away via foot.

The victim was able to describe the boys sufficiently enough to warrant a positive identification for the duo as the pair of robbers when the police later apprehended the teens.

The victim’s cell phone was also recovered nearby. The teens have been arrested and taken to police headquarters,where they were interviewed by detectives.

Both have subsequently been charged with robbery. Since the state of North Carolina does not have a statutory definition of “robbery,” NC uses the common law definition to charge the teens.

They are currently being held in Charlotte’s Juvenile Detention Center.
