Two McKeesport teens were taken into custody in connection with the robbery of a Glassport couple at an ATM at the PNC Bank branch along Lysle Boulevard on Friday.

McKeesport Captain of Detectives Tim Hanna said officers responded to the call for the robbery at 1:05 p.m.

The 69-year-old man was accompanied by his 57-year-old wife when he made a withdrawal from the machine. They were approached by two 17-year-old males, Hanna said.

One of them reportedly struck the man's arm and took cash. The suspects ran across Fifth Avenue toward some steps off Ringgold Street and into the McKeesport Towers area.

Hanna said officers received a description of the suspects and were able to detain them at the Towers. They were identified by the victims, taken into custody and transported to Shuman Juvenile Detention Center.

Hanna said the boys will be charged with robbery and conspiracy. The case is being handled through Juvenile Court. No injuries were reported.
