Bristol police have arrested a 19-year-old man and two juveniles in connection with an armed robbery that took place Saturday night on Memorial Boulevard.

According to police, Shayne Shakes, 19, of 53 Adam Street in Hartford, robbed a 16-year-old in Bristol on Saturday after threatening him with a gun. Police said Shakes and two other suspects, ages 17 and 14, took the victim’s wallet, cellphone and backpack.

No one was injured during the incident. A person driving by saw it happen and called police, who were able to track down the suspects and take them into custody.

Shakes was charged with first-degree robbery, fifth-degree larceny, possession of a dangerous weapon, second-degree breach of peace, conspiracy to commit first-degree robbery and conspiracy to commit fifth-degree larceny.

He is being held on a $50,000 bond and is due in court in Bristol on Sept. 3.

The two other suspects were also arrested and were referred to the Juvenile Court system, police said.
