SELMA, Ala. (AP) - Police say two Selma High School students accused of robbing a classmate at gunpoint are each being held on $60,000 bond.

Investigators say a 15-year-old boy told them he was picked up by two 17-year-old classmates Saturday morning and was told they were going to buy new shoes from a local store.

Police say the teen was instead driven to another location where one of the two older boys held a gun to the back of his head and demanded money.

Investigators say the teen jumped from the vehicle and suffered a minor injury. Authorities say one of the suspects was arrested at school Monday afternoon and the other was arrested at home.

The teens have been charged with robbery. The Associated Press typically doesn’t identify juvenile crime suspects.
