|Joel Santiago, age 15|
From an article:
The victim of Sunday night's armed robbery in the city said he was standing on his porch at 158 N. Eighth St. at about 9:15 p.m. when he saw a young male going through his neighbor's Jeep.
A moment later, the intruder, who police say is 15, approached Daniel McKimm and told him he had five seconds to give him his cell phone. The boy then began to count down from five.
McKimm, 19, told police he threw his black T-Mobile phone, ran into his home and called police.
A short time later, guns drawn, police took Joel Santiago into custody about six blocks away after they found him lying next to a parked car on Commerce Street between The News-Item and Center City Apartments.
Santiago, of 819 E. Dewart St., Shamokin, was charged as an adult with multiple offenses, including robbery and aggravated assault. ...
Siko said the weapon used by Santiago, which was recovered, is a compressed-air pellet gun that is a replica of a semi-automatic handgun.
"It really looks like a handgun," Siko said. "It weighs the same as a handgun and has all the same features."
Every gun in the hands of a child must first pass through the hands of an adult.
