Teen charged in Halfmoon robbery

A teen was charged in a Halfmoon robbery.

It happened on Tuesday, said investigators.

The 16-year-old suspect lured the victim to a business on Route 9 Tuesday to complete a Facebook Marketplace deal for a cell phone.

The teen then tried to take off without paying, police said. Then he allegedly threatened the victim with a knife.

The teen was arrested on Wednesday.

He’s due back in court in April.
