A Milford Mill Academy student has been charged with attempted robbery after he demanded that a student empty his pockets in a classroom this week, Baltimore County police said yesterday.
The suspect, a 15-year-old boy, walked into the classroom about 11:30 a.m. Tuesday and began punching another 15-year-old boy, police said. The suspect walked out, then returned with a 16-year-old student, according to police spokesman Cpl. Mike Hill.
The two boys demanded that the victim empty his pockets, and the 16-year-old implied that he had a weapon, Hill said. A teacher, noticing the boys in the back of the classroom, ordered them to leave.
On Wednesday morning, the victim told school officials what had happened, and the two suspects were arrested. The 16-year-old, a freshman, was charged with disrupting school operations. The 15-year-old, a sophomore, was charged with the same, as well as trespassing, second-degree assault and attempted robbery, Hill said.
Both students were charged as juveniles and released to the custody of their parents, he said.
