Two teens arrested for gunpoint robbery of laptop, iPhone

Two 16-year-olds were arrested on first- and second-degree robbery and other charges Thursday afternoon, shortly after they allegedly robbed an expensive laptop and iPhone from a Buffalo man.

The robbery occurred in front of a laundromat at Main and Custer streets. The teens were arrested in the second block of Hazelwood Avenue.

The two also were charged with third-degree criminal possession of firearm, a Winchester rifle with one round in the chamber; first-degree criminal use of a firearm; fourth-degree conspiracy and endangering the welfare of a child since juveniles allegedly were at the scene of the stickup. Police did not report a recovering of the laptop or cell phone with the arrests.
