Armed Robbers Took Meatball Sub


YEADON, Pa., Nov. 2 (UPI) — Police in Pennsylvania said they arrested a group of armed robbers accused of stealing a 13-year-old’s $5.50 meatball sub.

Investigators said the teenager was walking home from the deli with his sandwich Saturday evening in Yeadon when two men, identified as Rashawn Mallory, 21, and Ernest Barnett, 22, exited a black Ford Expedition, brandished a black revolver and ordered the victim not to move, The Delaware County Daily Times reported Wednesday.

Police said the two men searched the boy and left with his sandwich when they found nothing of value. However, they left the teenager’s cellphone, which he used to call police and give descriptions of the suspects and their vehicle.

Police located the vehicle, where the sandwich was found still in the wrapper.

Mallory and Barnett were charged with robbery, theft, receiving stolen property, recklessly endangering another person and simple assault. Mallory was also charged with making terroristic threats and firearms not to be carried without a license.

Two other men in the vehicle with the suspects, Antray Graves Jr., 20, and Rainey Smith, 21, were charged with criminal conspiracy to commit robbery theft, and receiving stolen property.
