A 16-year-old male and his friend where chased by a mob of teens who tried to robbed them. On 6/2/14, at approximately 9:30 p.m., the juvenile victim was walking with his friend E/B on E Pine St on his way to visit his mother who works at the Shell Station on Broadway.

Four suspects stepped in front of the victim and his friend and began to ask them questions. The suspects then ordered the victim to give them his shirt. The victim refused and one of the suspects punched him in the back of the head.   The victim and his friend attempted to run away but the four suspects chased them all the way to the Shell station where the victim’s mother called 911.

Officers quickly arrived and chased two of the suspects into a nearby business.   The two suspects were arrested without incident and later booked into the Youth Service Center for Investigation of Robbery.

The 16-year-old victim sustained soreness to the back of the head.  The second victim was not injured.

The two outstanding suspects are described as black males, 16-years-old.
