OCEAN TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) - Three juveniles who allegedly crashed a wedding reception in central New Jersey last weekend are now being sought on strong-armed robbery charges.

Authorities say the youths mingled with guests, consumed food and beverages and took pictures inside a photo booth set up for the event, which was held Saturday night at a banquet facility in Ocean Township (Monmouth County).

When it was learned that the three had not been invited to the reception, a woman who manages the facility tried to detain them until police arrived. But one of the youths threw her to the ground, and all three then ran out of the building.

Authorities say the strong-armed robbery charges were filed because the youths consumed beverages and food and then used physical force to flee.
