TWO teenagers were this week charged with an armed robbery in a Castle Bromwich street.
It's alleged the young men - aged 16 and 17 - had threatened the 64-year-old victim with a meat cleaver as he walked along Manor Park Road. The man was unhurt but a mobile phone and cash were stolen.
The incident is alleged to have occurred on Tuesday (February 14) at around 8pm, with the arrests made less than an hour later in nearby Chester Road.
Two teenagers, who hail from the Birmingham area but cannot be named for legal reasons, were subsequently charged with robbery, possession of a bladed article and possession of an offensive weapon by detectives.
They are understood to have appeared before Birmingham Magistrates Court yesterday (Friday).
