From Sandy Louey:
Elk Grove police have arrested a 16-year-old boy who allegedly pulled a boy off his bicycle and stole his cell phone.
The incident occurred at 4:38 p.m. Tuesday at Sheldon Creek Drive and Silvery Blue Way. A 12-year-old boy was riding his bicycle on a trail when the teen ran up to him and pulled him off the bicycle, according to report from the Elk Grove Police Department.
Police said the teen, who wore a beanie cap and a bandana covering the lower part of his face, held the boy down and searched his pockets. He verbally threatened to harm him before stealing his phone.
After the victim told his parents what happened, they drove around looking for the teen. Police were called and the teen, who was hiding in a nearby home, was taken into custody after the boy identified him as the robber, police said.
The 16-year-old was arrested on suspicion of robbery and taken to juvenile hall.
