A 14-year-old was arrested late last week with the help of the Troy Police Department. Because of his age, police have not released his name.

Both suspects were charged with first-degree robbery. The 14-year old was taken to the city’s Juvenile Detention Center at the Troy City Jail and the 21-year-old is being held on a $60,000 bond in the Pike County Jail.

The robbers took a cell phone, debit card and small amount of cash from the victim.

Police are still looking for the third suspect.
