Enid Teen to be charged as an adult juvenile after being arrested for first second degree robbery.

On June 30, 2014 at 8:54 P.M., the Enid Garfield County 911 Center received a 911 call concerning a seventeen year old female who was robbed by a seventeen year old male, in the 300 block of west Pine.

On arrival officers learned that a seventeen year old female had given three males a ride from Sonic Drive In to a residence in the 300 block of west Pine. The female knew two of the males. Shortly after dropping the three males off, one of the males identified as 17 year old MMH (NAME NOT USED), unknown to the victim, walked back up to the driver’s window of the female’s vehicle and started banging on the window demanding that she give him money. When the female refused, MMH walked around the front of the vehicle and opened the passenger’s door and yelled at the female to give him her money and again she said no. MMH then struck her in the face with his fist and yelled “I will hit you again”. The female started yelling for help and MMH then struck her again in the face and grabbed her wallet and took off running. The wallet contained various miscellaneous items and currency totaling $438.00.

Officers were able to locate MMH and place him under arrest for Robbery in the First Degree. MMH was booked into the Garfield County Detention Center because the charge is a Youthful Offender Crime, which allows him to be charged as an adult. The wallet was found on top of a business located in the area of the incident, but the money was missing from the wallet. Officers were able to recover $320.00 dollars of the missing $438.00 dollars.

UPDATE:  The Garfield County DA’s Office has reversed course and has decided to move the charge to second degree robbery and thus the charge would move it from being an adult crime to a juvenile crime.  Previously, the Route 60 Sentinel had published the name and picture of the 17 year old who was arrested.  The picture has been removed and the name has been removed.  While his name is still part of public record, the Route 60 Sentinel has removed his full name.
