VIDALIA, Ga. (WSAV) – Police say four teenagers have been arrested for robbing a 17-year-old Sunday in the parking lot of a Circle K.
The Vidalia Police Department met with the 17-year-old around 1 a.m. at the convenience store on E. First Street.
He told officers he was approached by Brandon Green, 19, of Lyons, and three others, later identified as Tekeila Baker, 18, Tyquan Toby, also 18, and 19-year-old Ronaldo Maldonado, who are all also residents of Lyons.
