Two teens have been charged in connection with a reported Raytown robbery after an electronics sale setup over a social media site.

Brandon J. Adams, 18, of Independence, and Faith A. Moore, 18, each face first-degree robbery charges. Prosecutors have requested bonds of $50,000.

According to court records, Raytown police were called to the 9300 block of East Gregory in Raytown on a reported robbery Sunday afternoon.

The victim told police he was robbed while attempting to sell several electronics items, including a laptop and Xbox. After he arranged to meet the supposed buyers, Moore, according to the victim, approached and said she would take the items to an apartment and return with the money. When the victim went to the apartment a man appeared wearing a mask.

According to court records, a third man pulled a BB gun from his sweatshirt and pointed it at the victim. When the victim resisted they fought. The victim was struck by the suspects several times.

The victim returned to his vehicle and called the police.

Three suspects were taken into custody. One suspect is a juvenile.
