A group of teenagers are facing charges for allegedly robbing a man who knew two of them from high school.
Back on June 6, court documents state the victim drove to the Normandy Food Store at 754 Normandy in east Harris County to buy a soda when he says he was approached by three men. One of them pointed a handgun at the victim, then they all got into his vehicle and told him to drive to a gas station down the street.
At the station, the victim told police one of the suspects told him to get out of the car then to drive down an alley, but the victim refused both times.
According to court documents, the victim was then ordered to drive to Charlie's Food market where they took his cell phone and fled the scene.
Investigators say the victim told them he knew two of the defendants, identified as Jaime Aguirre, Jr. and Mark Anthony Bastar, from high school. Police say the victim picked the third suspect, Efrain Tadeo Rodriguez, out of a photo lineup.
All three are charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon. Rodriguez is also charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Bastar, 18, and Aguirre, 18, are being held in the Harris County Jail. Rodriguez, 18, posted a $30,000 bond.
