Two Belize City men rob teens of cell phones

Two Belize City men were arrested for robbing two teenagers. A 19 year old and his 16-year-old  friend reported that on Saturday 2nd April  about 10:00 p.m.,  they were walking on the Phillip Goldson Highway near the NAPA roundabout heading in the direction of Belize City when they were approached from behind by two male persons of dark complexion on separate bicycles. One of men then placed a sharp object to the younger teen’s back and demanded that they hand over their belongings. Both teens handed over their cell phones after which the robbers  rode away on their bicycles towards the direction of Belcan Bridge. The teenagers started to run until they saw a uniformed police officer standing by the entrance of a bar and reported the incident to him. Two police officers immediately set chase within the direction where the suspects rode off  and police came across two male persons fitting the description, riding on separate bicycles. Both persons were stopped and searched and the two stolen phones found on them. Police also  recovered a piece of aluminum object measuring about 5 1/2 inches in length which had a sharp point. 21-year-old Carlos Molina of Jane Usher Boulevard and 32-year-old Ying Aranda of Jane Usher Boulevard were then detained pending charges
