Police say the teens stabbed Rob Ponsi while robbing him on Saturday night near Old York Road and Venable Avenue in Waverly.          

"I'm grateful that we had a lot of community input. That allowed us to identify --very quickly identify--these young people and get them off the streets," Rawlings-Blake said Wednesday.
