Boston Police report arresting three teens - 13, 14 and 16 - on charges they used a sawed-off shotgun to rob a guy who'd met them thinking one of them was going to sell him an iPhone.
Police say the victim had arranged with he thought was a phone purchase over Facebook and arrived at 22 Chipman St. shortly before 8:50 p.m. yesterday with cash to pay for it:
When the victim made contact with the male, the male and two additional suspects demanded to see the money. When the victim demanded to see the phone first, the three suspects brandished what appeared to be a sawed-off shotgun and ordered the victim to give them all his money. The victim handed over the money and the males fled on foot.
They fled and the victim made his way to the District B-3 station on Blue Hill Avenue. Not long after, police determined they might find the robbers on the third floor of 66 Norfolk St., around the corner from the robbery - which they did. The three, not named because of their age, now face a charge of being delinquent by way of armed robbery with a shotgun, police say.
