Two Franklin High students are charged with robbing and attempting to rob another student at the school on Friday.
A 17-year-old student is charged with robbery and a 15-year-old is charged with attempted robbery and possessing a weapon on school property, according to Lt. Stephen Doarnberger, assistant commander of the Baltimore County Police’s Franklin Precinct.
At 11 a.m. on Friday, Jan. 11, a 17-year-old student robbed another 17-year-old student of $10 in the boys bathroom. At 2:45 p.m., that same suspect and a 15-year-old student tried to rob the same victim in the school’s hallway. A fight started and was broken up by a teacher, Doarnberger said.
“By the time [the teacher] broke it up, he was able to obtain one of the students,” he said. That student was the 15-year-old, who was arrested Friday at the school. He had a knife on him but did not use it, Doarnberger said.
The 17-year-old suspect was arrested Monday at Franklin High and charged with robbery. Both suspects were released to their parents, Doarnberger said.
