A 17-year-old Barrie youth has been caught, arrested and charged with robbery and possession of a dangerous weapon.
A hysterical man called police from a Yonge Street business Friday night to report that he saw the person who robbed him, just two days before. He stated that the suspect had pointed a handgun at him and stole his cell phone.
When police showed up they saw the suspect jump off a bicycle and run into a wooded area. Police later found out the suspects name and found him at his Barrie home, and what the victim had thought to be a hand gun turned out to be a pellet gun.
He now faces a future court date.
