Sarasota, Florida-- The Sarasota County Sheriff's Office has arrested two Sarasota teens for terrorizing a 16-year-old boy in an armed robbery last night.

Detectives say the victim rode to a friend's home on Herwald Street around 11:00 p.m., Sunday to return a borrowed bicycle.

After a brief conversation with several individuals at the home, witnesses say 19-year-old Johnathan Walker punched the victim in the face and then he and 17-year-old Travis Stewart pinned the victim against a wall. 

Stewart put a gun in the victim's mouth and demanded money but took the victim's cell phone instead. A witness convinced Stewart to give the cell phone back and the victim started to walk away, but Stewart came after him again and struck the victim in the face with the butt of the gun.

Stewart and Walker are both charged with one count each of Aggravated Battery and Robbery with a Firearm.
