Nashua teen accused of armed robbery
NASHUA - A city teen is accused of armed robbery and resisting detention.
According to The Telegraph, Anthony Clark, 19, of 102 East Hollis St., was one of three teens arrested early Friday morning after the Merrimack Police Department responded to London Court Apartments for reports of an armed robbery.
The victims told police that the teens pointed two pistols and stole a small amount of marijuana and a mobile phone and fled on bicycles.
Clark was charged with two counts of armed robbery and one for resisting detention. His bail was set at $50,000 cash only pending his arraignment Monday.
The other juveniles, a 14-year-old male and a 17-year-old from Lawrence, Mass., were also detained.
Police said the suspects abandoned their bicycles and fled on foot. They were located on Daniel Webster Highway. Two of the suspects were arrested after a brief chase on foot. The 17-year-old was found two hours later hiding in the woods south of Twin Bridge Road.
Police say a search of the area where the suspects were arrested revealed a backpack with a BB gun in it. The gun resembled a .357 Magnum and matched the description by witnesses of one of the guns used in the robbery.
