BOCA RATON, FL (WFLX) - Five suspects in connection with the armed robbery of three juveniles around 2 a.m. Saturday morning were arrested shortly after.
The three victims were walking down Northwest 15th Avenue on the way home from the movies when a car with five males pulled up and asked them where they could find the nearest gas station.
As one of the victims was giving directions, three of the suspects jumped out of the car. One cupped his hands indicating a weapon and told all three victims to turn over their belongings.
The suspects then jumped back in their car, made a u-turn, and threw some of the belongings back at the victims.
The victims flagged down a Boca Raton Police Officer and quickly pointed to the suspect's car which was stopped at a traffic light.
The officer pulled over the car and the victims identified the suspects as the ones who robbed them.
The names of the men who were arrested are 29-year-old Mic Brandt, 21-year-old Andre Williams, 19-year-old Anthony Williams, 19-year-old John McKenzie and 18-year-old Larry Riley.
Anyone with additional information is asked to call Palm Beach County Crime Stoppers at 1-800-456-TIPS or Detective Jeff Clare at 561-338-1246.
