Freeman ran but was chased into nearby woods by armed neighbors, who held him until deputies arrived, according to the release.
One suspect hit the victims’ dog with a baseball bat during the incident as the dog tried to protect its owners, the sheriff said.
Freeman is in jail, and Alcantar is in a hospital, the sheriff said. Both teens will be charged with home invasion, armed robbery, burglary, aggravated assault and cruelty to animals.
