TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A 15-year-old has been arrested in connection to a home invasion robbery in February where he and two other teens attacked two women.

They said that the teen was arrested on Thursday and was booked into the Leon County Jail.

His arrest comes after Freddie Lee Robinson, 19, was arrested back in February.

According to a probable cause document, the victims told police that on Feb. 18, they were eating dinner at their apartment on West Pensacola Street when they got a knock at the door. One of the woman looked out their peep hole and saw the 15-year-old. 

The first victim said that she recognized the 15-year-old from hanging around the complex and told police that he had visited them in the past.

Once the door opened, the first victim was immediately attacked.

The second victim said that when she heard the commotion, she came out of the bedroom and saw the 15-year-old, and two other males hitting the other victim. She told police that she tried to pull them off the other victim before they started hitting her too.

Sometime while the first victim and the 15-year-old were fighting on the floor, a gun either fell out of his pants or he pulled it out and dropped it. Police say that he and the woman struggled over control of the gun. 

At the same time, the second victim had managed to break away from the other two suspects to get a rifle from the hallway. When she did however, Robinson took the rifle from her and threw her to the ground.

As she tried to get up, she told them that Robinson pointed the gun at her and attempted to pull the trigger several times. She told police that she thought she was going to be killed, but apparently the gun was jammed. 

According to the document, the suspects stole $300 from a kitchen drawer and a rifle. 

Both face charges of home invasion robbery with a firearm, grand theft, and other charges.
