High School Student Faces 10 Years For Armed Robbery on Classmate

Posted: Updated:

Now that a jury has returned a guilty verdict, an 18-year-old Jenkins High School student faces at least a decade in prison without parole for an armed robbery on a classmate.

The crime happened back in June on Derenne Avenue, according to the Chatham County District Attorney's Office. Anthony Leroy Brown was with two unidentified individuals when he approached the victim from behind, pointed a gun to the back of his head and demanded cash. 

When the victim told Brown that he did not have any cash, Brown then took his classmate's cell and rummaged his vehicle before running off down the street with his associates, said Assistant District Attorney Matthew Breedon.

Breedon says the victim was able to positively identify Brown from a school yearbook. Detectives tracked Brown down at home, arrested and charged him with armed robbery, aggravated assault and possession of a firearm during the commission of a crime.

Brown now awaits sentencing.
