A Brooklyn pair admits they robbed an Albany barbershop.

The district attorney says Tyreek James and Omari Williams pleaded guilty to robbery on Friday.


Last August, the pair walked into Ritmo's Barbershop on New Scotland Avenue, and robbed the owner and some customers - even stealing a customer's car.

Williams faces six years in prison.

James faces up to five.
