Juveniles Charged in Armed Robbery

Two juveniles are behind bars this morning after an armed robbery in downtown Savannah overnight. Police tell us, just after 11pm, three people were getting into a car after leaving a City Market club when they were approached by two young men. One pulled a gun and demanded money and when they got it, the two suspects fled toward Yamacraw Village. That's when savannah police officers spotted them and were able to take them into custody and recover the gun.

Both suspects were taken to the robbery office where they were interviewed. Their parents were notified, then the suspects were taken to the youth detention center, charged with armed robbery. Their names have not been released.
