UTICA, N.Y. – Two Utica teens are charged with robbery after allegedly stealing a bike from a man on Eagle Street on April 26.
An investigator with the Criminal Investigation Division was driving down Eagle Street near Howard Avenue, when she says she saw several teens crowded around a man on a bicycle.
As she went closer to the scene, the officer says the teens started to hit the man repeatedly before stealing his bike and running away.
Two 15-year-old boys were found with the bike not far from the scene of the original incident. The bike was returned to the victim, and the teens were both arrested and charged with second-degree robbery.
