Two Roswell high school students are accused of jumping and robbing a man at gunpoint last week, authorities said.
Jordan Mines, 17, was the alleged gunman during the Nov. 10 incident, and a 16-year-old charged as his accomplice is in the custody of the Department of Juvenile Justice, Channel 2 Action News reported. AJC.com does not report the names of minors who are being charged as juveniles.
They’re accused of attacking Eduin Garcia outside the Nesbit Palisades Apartments off Jasmine Parkway, he told Channel 2.
“It just happened at like 2 o’clock, which is crazy,” Garcia said. “Broad daylight.”
Roswell Police Lt. Noah Caplan told the news station that nearby officers were able to arrest the two teenagers shortly after the alleged robbery.
Mines faces charges of armed robbery, aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, according to Fulton County Jail records. The minor faces an armed robbery charge, Channel 2 reported.
Mines remains in the Fulton County Jail without bond, according to records. His first court appearance is scheduled for next week, the news station reported.
