MORENO VALLEY (CBS) — Three men have been arrested for allegedly robbing 12- and 14-year-old boys, authorities said Tuesday.

Perry Morris III, 20, Lamar Baxter, 19, and Dominique Magee, 18, all of Moreno Valley, were arrested Monday in connection with two robberies that occurred earlier in the day, sheriff’s Sgt. David Lelevier said.

The men, who were responding to a advertisement for an iPod, were arrested on suspicion of robbing the 12-year-old seller, who had agreed to meet them in front of his home.

The second victim, whose cell phone was taken, was reportedly robbed in a shopping center parking lot a short time later.

“He was approached by two male adults who threatened to physically harm him if he did not give them his HTC Evo cell phone,” Lelevier said.

All three were arrested on suspicion of robbery and conspiracy to commit robbery. Baxter’s bail was set at $40,000. Bail amounts for the other two were unavailable.
