Police arrest three juveniles for July armed robbery on Gulf Street
Police are not releasing the names of the three people arrested because they are juveniles, ages 16 and 17.
The robbery took place July 17 at about 1:30 a.m. on Gulf Street near Snug Harbor Road.
A preliminary investigation revealed that the two adult victims, ages 50 and 53, were walking in the area when they were approached by a group of males wearing hooded shirts. One of the males brandished a handgun during the incident. The suspects took personal property from the victims, including a cell phone along with a wallet containing cash and credit cards. The juveniles then fled the area, last seen heading northbound on Gulf Street toward New Haven Avenue. No one was injured during the incident.
Investigators from the Milford Police Detective Division identified the three juveniles involved in the robbery, which led to warrants being issued for their arrests. The three were arrested Nov. 13 and 14.
The first juvenile, 17, of Milford was charged with robbery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit robbery, fifth degree larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, criminal use of a firearm, conspiracy to commit criminal use of a firearm, and threatening.
The second juvenile, 16, of Milford was charged with first degree robbery, conspiracy to commit robbery, fifth degree larceny, conspiracy to commit larceny, criminal use of a firearm, and conspiracy to commit criminal use of a firearm.
The third juvenile, 16, also of Milford was charged with conspiracy to commit robbery in the first degree, conspiracy to commit larceny in the fifth degree, and conspiracy to commit criminal use of a firearm.
In addition, three arrest warrants were served on the 17-year-old regarding his alleged involvement in several vehicle break-ins in the Milford area in August and September. He was charged with three counts of burglary and three counts of larceny.
All three juveniles are scheduled to appear in juvenile court.
