Teen charged in Culpeper robbery

Culpeper police charged a 17-year-old boy with armed robbery late last night and are seeking a second person involved in the incident.

Police charged the 17-year-old boy with robbery, use of a firearm in commission of a robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery.

About 11 p.m., a couple sat in a parked car in the cul-de-sac on Thomas Way, when two people approached them and tapped on the driver’s window. The 17-year-old, who allegedly was armed with a handgun, ordered the man and woman from the car and told them to lie on the ground.

The robbers then rifled through their pockets and the woman’s purse and took several undisclosed items.

Following the robbery, the two suspects ran into the woods toward Floyd T. Binns Middle School. Police fanned out in the area and about 11:40 p.m. located two possible suspects, one being the 17-year-old boy, on Belle Ave. The second subject fled.

Police are looking for a second black male, possibly a juvenile. He was last seen wearing a black hooded jacket with fur around the hood. He also wore black gloves with white writing and black shoes.

The 17-year-old is being held in the Blue Ridge Juvenile Detention Center in Charlottesville.

Police did not recover a weapon.
