Police have charged two Queens teens with robbery after they stole a cell phone from a 12-year-old.

Two 17-year-olds have been arrested for robbing a 12-year-old in South Richmond Hill last week, said police.

Barshaan Morrison and Thomas Williamson have been charged with robbery and criminal possession of a weapon.

On Thursday, January 31, at about 4:00 p.m., the suspects allegedly approached the victim from behind as he was walking on 111th Street near Liberty Avenue, pinned him up against a tree and demanded his phone. The victim complied and handed over his Samsung Galaxy, and the suspects fled.
