Two accused teen armed robbers still at large

Posted at 7:49 PM, Mar 08, 2016

Police across several jurisdictions are still looking for two teenage boys accused in a carjacking and several recent robberies in Cleveland Heights and Cleveland.

Last week, police said four boys in total have been riding around in a stolen Ford Escape robbing people. On Saturday, police arrested two of them and recovered the stolen SUV, but they are still looking for two others.
 
Police said those teens carjacked a woman on East 116th Street. That stolen white 2009 Mercury Milan, license plate number GLT-4055, is still missing.
 
The juveniles are wanted in a March 1 aggravated robbery where a Case Western Reserve University student was robbed at gunpoint and they could be connected to other similar crimes.
 
On Feb. 29, Case Western University student Jack Shen told newsnet5.com he was robbed by four boys on South Overlook Road near Cedar Road while walking home from class. It happened in broad daylight, shortly after noon.
 
Shen said the boys jumped out of the SUV and tackled him, stealing belongings including his wallet and phone. He said the ordeal only lasted about a minute. Now he walks home paranoid.
 
"It was like at 12:15 p.m. and I always assume the street I live on is pretty safe,” Shen said. “A few times I was walking back the next few days and I would look behind my shoulder if somebody was following me.”
 
Police said the two remaining suspects are considered armed.
