Law enforcement was called to the scene of an armed robbery Sunday afternoon.

Shortly after 4 p.m., police responded to the incident at Forest Brook Crossing.

Upon arrival deputies located and detained 3 suspects, said Hall County Sheriff’s Office spokesman Deputy John Marshall. Detectives later charged all three with the armed robbery of a taxi driver.

Two of the offenders are juveniles and the third is Josue Gonzalez, 19. The names of the juveniles and victim were not released.

“I believe it was cash and some other property,” Marshall said about the stolen items. All items had been recovered.

The taxi driver was treated at Northeast Georgia Medical Center for what appeared to be minor injuries
