ANNAPOLIS, Md. — Only one week after a 14-year-old was thrown to the ground during a robbery, a 12 and 13-year-old were also robbed in the same area of Annapolis.

On Wednesday just before 4 p.m., Annapolis Police say a 12-year-old boy was walking near Tyler Ave and Janwall Street when he was surrounded by four teenagers. One of the suspects demanded the boys cells phone, took it, and then ran away.

Shortly after, a 13-year-old boy was robbed by the same teenage suspects only a half a mile away in the 1300 block of Forest Drive. Police say the teenagers demanded the boy's cell phone and then ran away.

Police were able to find one of the suspects in the 1100 block of Madison St, a 13-year-old boy from Severn. The teen was arrested and charged as a juvenile in both robberies. He was then released to a guardian.
