A 15-year-old boy is facing charges after two attempted armed robberies on Wednesday night.
Around 11:00 p.m., police were called after three teenage boys approached a woman and demanded her money and cell phone. One of the teens showed a knife and the other had a gun. The woman was able to get away without incident.
About 45 minutes later, Police were called to the intersection of Albert Street and Avonhurst Drive after a cab driver reported that he had been parked when he was confronted by two teen boys. One of the boys pointed a gun at the driver and demanded money. The driver was able to drive away unharmed.
Police have determined that the two incidents were related.
A 15-year-old boy, who cannot be named under the Youth Criminal Justice Act, was arrested and charged with a number of gun and robbery related charges. The teen will appear in court on Thursday.
Police have not released descriptions of any of the other suspects in the robberies.
