ANNAPOLIS, Md. — A man was injured after being robbed at gunpoint and jumped by a group of teens in Annapolis late Sunday, police said.

The man was walking in the 1700 block of Forest Drive at about 11:45 p.m. when he was approached by five or six teenage boys in a group, police said. Several of the teens were wearing face masks and one displayed a gun, pointing it at the man and demanding his belongings.

The teens proceeded to punch and kick the man, steeling his coat, belt, cell phone and wallet when he fell to the group, police said. His face was bruised, cut, and swollen, and he complained of arm pain. He was taken to a hospital for treatment. The man was able to recover his wallet.

Police searched the area and found the group of teens, identifying the one in the group who used the gun in the robbery. Officers arrested 17-year-old Ronrico Coates, of Annapolis, and charged him as an adult with armed robbery, robbery, first- and second-degree assault, handgun on a person, and theft. He was taken to the Jennifer Road Detention Center and held without bond.
