Police Charge Teens With Robbery

A group of youth from Cleveland Heights and East Cleveland were arrested and charged with robbery.

A caller reported that she was robbed while walking near the 800 block of Lecona Road at 12:50 a.m. June 29. She told that she and her friends saw a car with the headlights off driving down the street. A man got out of the car with a gun and pointed it at the group, the victim said. He and others involved stole a cell phone. 

Police later arrested four suspects — a 19-year-old man from East Cleveland, a 16-year-old boy from Cleveland Heights and a 15-year-old boy from Cleveland Heights. The fourth suspect's information was not available. Police did not find a gun on the suspects. Police said the teens were also possibly involved in a robbery in South Euclid before this incident.

Reports compiled from call logs and information from the Cleveland Heights Police Department. Arrests and charges do not indicate conviction.

Another good job by the CHPD.
