CLIFTON PARK – Two juveniles have been arrested in connection with a robbery in Clifton Park Tuesday evening, Saratoga County Sheriff’s officials said.

The teens, one age 14 from Wilton, and the other age 16 from Cohoes, were both arrested and charged with first-degree robbery and criminal use of a firearm. They were not identified due to their ages.

The incident happened Tuesday evening in the parking lot of the Home Goods Store at Clifton Park Center, officials said. A woman had agreed to meet someone there to purchase items. She had agreed to the sale on Snap Chat, officials said.

The victim entered the vehicle and immediately encountered realistic weapons pointed at her and the individuals demanded she empty her pockets, officials said.

Deputies and state police soon received a description of the vehicle via 911 and soon found it at the Market 32 in the Shoppers World Plaza, officials said.

Deputies detained the occupants and recovered weapons determined to be BB guns, officials said.

The 14-year-old was referred to Saratoga County Family Court and the 16-year-old was arraigned in Saratoga County Court Youth Part and released.
