14-year-old charged with armed robbery


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police have charged a child with armed robbery of a food delivery driver. It happened just after 10 p.m. Monday.

The delivery driver said he was robbed at gunpoint while trying to deliver a large order of Chinese food on Hunt Club Road.

Responding officers set up a perimeter. A K-9 team began a track and found multiple containers of food behind several units in Lullwater Village.

Based on the description of the robber and officers' previous contacts in the area, they identified a 14-year-old as the suspect. Both the victim and a witness subsequently identified him as the robber, and he was detained on a secure custody order.

The suspect's name has not been released because he is a juvenile.
