On Monday, December 7, 2015 at 9:01 pm officers responded to a reported armed robbery in the 1200 block of Geneva St. Upon their arrival they spoke with two victims. During the preliminary investigation the officers learned that both victims were parked in a vehicle, in front of a home in the 1200 block of Geneva St. While sitting in the vehicle the victims were approached by four black males. One of the suspects produced a handgun, pointed it at the victims, and demanded a bag that the victim was carrying. When the victim refused, he was struck in the head with the butt of the handgun. The suspects then grabbed the bag and fled.

Officers later located three suspects matching the description of the offenders a short distance away. The three suspects were subsequently apprehended for the above charges after being interviewed and were transported to juvenile detention. A fourth suspect is still being sought for questioning in this incident.
