A 17-year-old from Cleveland and a 16-year-old from Akron face a slew of charges after a reported robbery late Thursday in East Akron.
The incident happened about 10:30 p.m. near the intersection of Sylvan and Palmetto avenues, according to a police report.
Police said two men from Cuyahoga Falls drove to the area intending to sell mobile phones they listed on the "Let go" mobile app.
When the sellers got out of the car to meet the buyers, they were approached by three males carrying handguns who told the sellers to lay on the ground. Police said a gun-toter pistol-whipped a Cuyahoga Falls man while the other two searched their pockets.
The reported thieves left with a mobile phone and keys to a 2006 Pontiac G6, police said.
Police spied the stolen Pontiac a few minutes later and, after a brief chase, the car crashed at the intersection of Brown Street and Cypress Avenue.
The suspects ran, but police said they apprehended two teens, along with a loaded handgun left inside the car.
The teens were placed into the custody of the Summit County Juvenile Detention Center.
