Two 16-year-old boys are facing multiple charges after an alleged robbery, according to Windsor police.

Officers were dispatched to a parking lot in the 3000-block of Howard Avenue around 7:45 p.m Tuesday. 

Police say the victim arranged to meet with one of the teens who he knew. The teen showed up to the parking lot with another 16-year-old boy who was unknown to the victim.

The two male suspects allegedly brandished weapons and demanded money — which the victim gave to them before being assaulted.

Officers attended the scene and observed the male victim to have minor injuries.

The victim stated one of the suspects brandished the handle of what appeared to be a firearm. However, only a knife was recovered at the scene. It is unconfirmed whether or not a firearm was involved.

The 16-year-old male suspects are facing charges of robbery and possession of a dangerous weapon.
