BOSTON (AP) - Police have arrested three teenagers they say used a sawed-off shotgun during a weekend robbery in Boston

The suspects ages 13, 14 and 16 are expected to appear in juvenile court.

The alleged victim walked into the Mattapan police station on Saturday evening. He told officers he had arranged to meet someone to buy an iPhone that he saw posted online.

Authorities say at the meeting, the suspects took out a sawed-off shotgun and ordered the man to give them his money.

Investigators charged the teens with being delinquent and armed robbery by means of a shotgun. The weapon was recovered.



Police Commissioner William Evans called the robbery “troubling.”
