PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - Law enforcement officials say four Rhode Island boys ranging from 9 to 14 years old robbed and beat a man in Providence.

The attorney general’s office says the four face first-degree robbery charges after using a wooden object and rocks to beat a 45-year-old man after demanding money.

The Providence Journal reports that Victor Boj told police he was approached by the youths Tuesday evening.

Police quickly located the four - two 13-year-olds, a 14-year-old and a 9-year-old. They remain held at a youth facility after appearing Wednesday in Family Court.
