TAKOMA PARK, Md. (WUSA9) - Officials have arrested three male adolescents for alleged armed robbery, 1st degree burglary, theft under $500 and 2nd degree assault. Police are still searching for a fourth adolescent who they believe aided the juveniles in the robbery.
Police say that on March 6th they responded to reports of a fight on the 7800 block of Kennewick Avenue. Four adolescents reportedly assaulted a victim and forced their way into the victim's home. They then stole property, police say.
Officials claim that when police arrived to the victim's residence the four adolescents had fled. However, Takoma Park police located two of them on Erskine St. in possession of the stolen property. After contacting the third subject's parents officials took him into custody.
Police have not located the fourth adolescent. Reports describe him as a Hispanic male, medium build and between the ages of 15-17. He was last seen wearing a dark blue jacket and black jeans.
All three adolescents are being detained in Noyes Juvenile Detention Facility. Investigation is on-going.
