Two men and a 16-year-old boy have been charged with forcing a man to hand over his wallet at Summit Street Apartments Wednesday night.

Gainesville police have charged Rodriguez Monquez Glasper, 18, with armed robbery and aggravated assault; Anthony Dewayne Harris, 21, with armed robbery; and the 16-year-old, who is unnamed because he is a juvenile, with armed robbery, said Lt. Carol Martin.

The three suspects live in Gainesville.

Police responded to the apartments at 835 Summit St. at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday to an armed robbery report. The victim said one of the suspects produced a handgun and took his wallet, Martin said.

A short time later, three suspects matching a description given by the victim were spotted and a brief chase on foot with police ensued, Martin said.
