Teenagers robbed near Walnut High School

WALNUT — A group of half a dozen young men robbed two teenagers as they walked near Walnut High School Friday afternoon, authorities said.
The crime took place about 3:30 p.m. at Arbola Lane and Delphine Drive, one block south of the high school, Sgt. R. Causey of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s Walnut-Diamond Bar Station said.
Two teenage boys were walking on the sidewalk when they were approached by a group of young men, the sergeant said.
The robbers first grabbed a watch from one of the boys, but apparently were not satisfied with it and threw it to the ground, Causey said. They then took an iPhone from the other boy.
After obtaining the phone, the six robbers got into a silver, four-door Honda or Toyota sedan, which was last seen westbound on Delphine Drive, Causey said.
The teenage victims were not injured in the robbery, he added. It was unclear if they were students at the nearby high school.
Officials described all the robbers as men of 18 or 19 years old. One was Latino, 5 feet 6 inches to 5 feet 8 inches tall and about 155 pounds, while another was described as Latino, 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall and about 145 pounds.
