Dartmouth, MA – On Saturday, March 28th at approximately 4:45 p.m., Dartmouth Police responded to an alleged armed robbery, which had occurred in the parking lot of the Dollar General store located on Dartmouth Street.
Upon arrival, officers spoke with the juvenile victim, who informed them that two males on bicycles, one of whom displayed a firearm and a knife in the waistline of his pants, had stolen his AirPods when he exited the store.
While conducting a search of the area, officers were able to develop information which led them to identifying two suspects that were juveniles who live in close proximity.
With the assistance of their parents, both suspects were eventually identified, and a BB gun which matched the description of the gun allegedly brandished during the incident, was seized as evidence.
As a result of the incident, one juvenile male from Dartmouth, and one juvenile male from New Bedford, were placed under arrest and charged with armed robbery and conspiracy to commit armed robbery.
Both juveniles will be arraigned on a later date.
No one was injured.
