3 teens arrested in White Oak robbery
An 18-year-old McKeesport resident is in Allegheny County Jail in lieu of $100,000 bond on charges that he robbed a White Oak teenager last weekend at gunpoint.
White Oak police Chief Lou Bender said Ryan J. Marshall Jr. was arraigned on Friday morning before Magisterial District Judge Thomas G. Miller Jr. on felony counts of robbery, unlawful constraint and conspiracy and misdemeanor counts of simple assault and terroristic threats.
Bender said two juvenile males, a 16-year-old from McKeesport and a 17-year-old from North Versailles Township, were charged as well in the Feb. 22 holdup of a 16-year-old male headed home from a convenience store around 8:30 p.m.
“He was threatened with what he believed to be a pistol,” Bender said of the youth accosted along Vermont Avenue. The victim was not injured.
“White Oak and McKeesport police arrested Marshall on (Thursday) at his home on Soles Street,” Bender said. The 16-year-old was charged with robbery, criminal conspiracy, unlawful restraint, simple assault and terroristic threats, while the 17-year-old was charged with criminal conspiracy and possession of a controlled substance.
The two younger suspects were placed in Shuman Juvenile Detention Center and their cases will be processed through Juvenile Court.
A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Marshall on March 17 at 1:30 p.m. in Miller's courtroom.
