18-year-old Devontta Dorsey and 17-year-old Darrell Broussard have been charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

The victim placed an ad on Facebook selling an iPad for $400.  He received a text from somebody interested in the iPad and told him to meet at Miller Intermediate School off Westpark around 6 p.m.

Two men approached the seller from a nearby apartment complex.  The victim handed one of the men the iPad, they started to walk away. When the victim asked for the money they pulled out a gun and demanded the man’s wallet.

After searching the man’s vehicle for more valuables, the suspects returned to the apartment complex.
