Comments () A Text Size

Denton police charged four suspects, ranging in age from 16 to 26 years, with robbery Thursday after responding to a suspicious activity call in the 3400 block of Joyce Lane.

Police said someone overheard someone else yelling from a neighbor’s apartment, “Give me the money” and “I’m going to kill you.”

The victim, a 44-year-old man, reported to police that the four suspects entered the apartment, demanded money, threatened to kill him and ransacked his apartment looking for valuables.

The four were detained and later charged with robbery, police said.
