CEDAR RAPIDS — Three teens face robbery charges after a young man flagged down patrol officers over the weekend to report he’d been confronted at gunpoint.
The 19-year-old told police he had been robbed of his wallet, a gold chain and cash, according to a criminal complaint.
He told investigators he had been communicating over social media with Sadaris A. Noye, 17, of Cedar Rapids, and had made plans to go “hang out” at Noye’s home.
But when he entered a backyard in the 700 block of Second Avenue SW, he was robbed by Noye and two others, identified as Brent Lee Robinson, 17, of Cedar Rapids, and Patrick L. Lucas, 18, of Marion, police said.
Both were armed and each had pointed a loaded gun at the victim, police said.
The victim also reported he was hit on the head during the robbery.
The juveniles are being charged as adults. Noye faces a charge of first-degree robbery, according to court records, while Lucas and Robinson each face charges of first-degree robbery, going armed with intent, carrying weapons and being a felon in possession of a firearm.
