Six individuals allegedly involved in an off-campus strong-armed robbery from earlier this month were arrested, according to a release by Syracuse University’s Department of Public Safety.

A Syracuse University student reported the incident on the 100 block of Remington Avenue on Oct. 7, when three unknown males demanded money from him and forcibly removed his wallet.

As a result of that incident, two 15-year old boys and a 14-year old boy were charged with robbery in the second degree, according to a Syracuse Police Department press release. The three boys have been released to their parents on appearance tickets and will appear in Family Court at a later date, according to the release.

The arrested individuals have allegedly taken part in other crimes in the area, according to the release.
