Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say three teens, including two 15-year-olds, were arrested at the scene of a SWAT situation Sunday afternoon on West 28th Street and North Poplar Street.
Deangelo Martin, 17, was charged with robbery with a dangerous weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a dangerous weapon, possession of a stolen motor vehicle and hit and run. The two 15-year-olds were charged with resisting arrest. Their names were not released.
The incident began at 4:39 p.m. Sunday, when CMPD officers saw a vehicle thought to be related to a recent armed robbery.
Officers tried to pull over the vehicle, but it failed to stop and crashed at West 28th and North Poplar streets, officials said. Five people fled from the vehicle. After a brief foot chase, two of them were detained, and a third was found nearby a short time later.
The SWAT team was deployed because the two other occupants of the vehicle were believed to have gone into a nearby apartment complex. Residents of the complex were relocated as a precaution. The two subjects were not found, police said.
