update on last night....

A neighbor posted this to the community mailing list this afternoon:

In the past few weeks there have been numerous armed robberies of pedestrians in the area ... committed by two juvenile males. Police suspected they were being committed by the same pair....

A 19-year-old female reported being robbed at gunpoint in that area. A Penn Police unit was in the vicinity, heard the report, and spotted two males matching descriptions of the suspects. They gave chase to the individuals, who fled though backyards. An officer followed and captured a 15-year-old boy and, if memory serves me aright, a gun. Police now have the name of the other suspect.

Fifteen years old? Armed robbery? Holy smokes.
