PlayStation sale turns into armed robbery, detectives say

BROOKSVILLE (FOX 13) -

Two teenagers, 13 and 15 years old, were arrested after deputies say they robbed and pistol-whipped two people at a Brooksville gas station.

It happened last Friday around 1 a.m.

Investigators say the victims drove there from Hillsborough County to sell a PlayStation gaming system and some games to go with it.

When they got to the gas station, the teens held them up at gunpoint and pistol-whipped one of them, according to the Hernando County Sheriff's Office.

Surveillance cameras captured the robbery, and led to one of the suspects, the sheriff's office said. Detectives got consent from the suspect's father to search the house, and they say they found the stolen property, along with the guns and clothes used during the robbery.

The two teenagers now face felony robbery charges.
