2 Children Arrested for Robbery on A.C. Boardwalk

Police say they made their getaway on bicycles

Investigators say they arrested two young thieves on Thursday in Atlantic City.  The robbery suspects are just 10 and 14-years old.

The victim told police she was sitting on a bench on the Boardwalk when she was approached by two boys on bikes. The 10-year old allegedly grabbed her cell phone and the pair rode away.

An alert officer later spotted the two riding along Atlantic Avenue.  Police say one of the boys had the victim’s cell phone.

The 14-year old was in possession of a phone that had been stolen earlier in the week, said investigators.

Both are charged with robbery, conspiracy and receiving stolen property.
