Two teenagers were arrested Tuesday night after authorities responded to two reported armed robberies outside the Fashion Outlets of Niagara Falls, according to State Police.
Troopers responded at 7:40 p.m. to the mall parking lot as Niagara County sheriff's deputies were called to a different area of the lot for another armed robbery, state police said.
Town of Niagara police detained a 15-year-old suspect, while Niagara Falls police detained a 16-year-old suspect. Troopers found a ski mask and a replica gun used in the robberies, police said.
Both suspects were charged with second-degree robbery and second-degree attempted robbery. They were arraigned in Lewiston Town Court. The 16-year-old was remanded to the Niagara County Jail on $20,000 cash bail while the 15-year-old was released to a family member. Both are due in Niagara Town Court on Thursday.
