Teens charged in armed robberies outside Fashion Outlets mall

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.
