All four suspects are between the ages of 16 and 17 years old.

As one of the suspects continues to talk to the boy on his bike, another suspect runs up the sidewalk.
The first two suspects take the boy to the ground as two more come running in from across the street.

The four suspects attempt to get what they can off of the teen, appearing to make off some of the boy’s possessions.
A horn honks, prompting the four to end their search, fleeing to the car and driving off. The suspect in red appears to attempt fleeing in the opposite direction, but instead gets into the car with the other three suspects.
The four suspects were all charged with robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. One was additionally charged with assault with a deadly weapon or means likely to produce great bodily injury.
