TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - A 17-year-old is facing felony charges after police say he stole $7 and a cellphone from a victim, then later posted the victim's nude photos to her Instagram.

According to court documents, the teen robbed the victim at the NBNW Apartments back in December 2017. Before he let her go, the teen forced the victim to give him her phone's passcode.

Minutes later, police were able to find the teen using the "Find My iPhone" application. 

The 17-year-old admitted to robbing the victim, but denied stealing her money, though police had found the $7 in his pocket earlier.

When the victim got her phone back, she discovered that the teen had taken screenshots of two nude photos in her camera roll. The teen then posted the photos to the victim's Instagram account.

As a result, the teen was charged with robbery and sexual cyber harassment. He was taken into custody on Wednesday. 

WTXL is choosing not to identify the 17-year-old due to his age.
