The teenage suspect wanted for a series of three robberies on Monday, May 20, between 7:20 a.m. and 8:20 a.m. has been arrested, announced Captain Jeffrey D. Schiff of the 76th Precinct in Carroll Gardens and Red Hook.

The young man is suspected of attempting to rob a total of six different teenagers, aged 12-16, along Court, Smith, and Henry Streets, as the boys were on their way to school. In four of the instances, he allegedly “brandished a knife” and demanded money — usually only $1 . Three of the victims resisted and fled, while two immediately complied and handed over cash or wallets, and one complied, but had nothing to steal.

The other three robberies occurred during the morning and afternoon on Wednesday, May 22.

There were no injuries reported. All of the victims were Hispanic or Caucasian teens.

The suspect, a black male in his late teens to early 20s, was arrested early Friday morning, May 24, at the Carroll Street F subway station.
