Three teens charged in separate robberies in Cleveland Heights
Three teenagers are facing juvenile charges in a pair of robberies that happened in Cleveland Heights. CLEVELAND HEIGHTS, Ohio - Three teenagers face juvenile charges in a pair of robberies that happened in Cleveland Heights. The incidents happened within a three-hour period Saturday but do not appear to be related, police said. Two 17-year-old boys are accused of attacking a 19-year-old man just before 4 p.m. outside Gas USA on Noble Road near Monticello Boulevard, according to a police report. The victim had just left the gas station when the teens pushed him into a parked car and began hitting him. They stole a pack of cigarillos and other items before leaving in a black Oldsmobile Alero, the report says. The victim, who had several cuts and bruises on his face, identified two of the attackers as the 17-year-old boys. Detectives are still working to identify the third attacker. Police filed robbery charges against the 17-year-old boys in Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court. A 15-year-old boy is also accused of stealing a 12-year-old boy's bicycle shortly before 8 p.m. near the Noble Elementary School playground, according to a police report. The victim said several boys threw him off his Huffy bicycle and began hitting and kicking him. The victim was not hurt but was distraught when officers arrived, the report says. Officers found the 15-year-old boy at the playground. He first denied being involved in the attack and provided a fake identity to the officers. The boy then tried to run, but officers caught him near the intersection of Noble and Montevista roads, the report says. The 15-year-old boy is charged with robbery and obstructing officials business in Cuyahoga County Juvenile Court. Detectives are working to identify the other teens involved in the robbery.
