South Orange Police arrested two teenagers — one a Columbia High School student — in the robbery of a Seton Hall University student last Tuesday, said Chief James Chelel.

The student reported he was walking on campus at 8:20 p.m., when he was approached by four teenagers who attempted to grab his cell phone. After a brief struggle, the four fled and the student called police, said Chelel.

Several South Orange Police units responded quickly and were able to locate all four teens, who matched the descriptions given by the student, Chelel said. The victim positively identified them, and police took them into custody.

Police charged two of the teens, a 17-year-old male Columbia High School student from Maplewood, and a 17-year-old boy from Orange, with robbery, said Chelel. Police determined the other two, who were both 16-year-old South Orange residents, did not play an active part in the robbery and released them to their parents’  custody, Chelel said.

The SHU student was not injured and refused medical attention, said Chelel.
