GREENBURGH, N.Y. - Two teenagers were tracked down by police in Greenburgh after allegedly attacking and stealing two cell phones from a man outside the public library.

Officers from the Greenburgh Police Department were dispatched to the library at approximately 12:20 p.m. on Tuesday following reports of a robbery.

Upon arrival, police located the victim, who said he had been robbed of two cell phones and was injured while attempting to regain possession of his belongings, which had an estimated value of $1,660. He was able to provide a description of two suspects to officers, who canvassed the area and tracked down 17-year-old Elmsford resident Barry Maxwell, who was arrested at the scene and transported to police headquarters.

Maxwell was processed and charged with second-degree robbery, burglary, criminal possession of stolen property and petit larceny. A second suspect, whose name was not released due to his status as a juvenile, was also arrested.

Both suspects are due back in court later this year.
