A 16-year-old Hagerstown boy has been charged with armed robbery after police said he and an accomplice used pellet pistols to steal an iPod Touch and other items last month, Washington County District Court documents show.

Antoine Alfonso Hunter, of 25 Summer St., was charged as an adult with armed robbery, robbery, first- and second-degree assault, and theft of items valued at more than $500, as well as conspiracy to commit each of these crimes, court records show.

The robbery happened at about 10:45 p.m. on July 3 as the victim walked through an alley near the first block of Ross Street, Hagerstown Police Department detective S.E. Blankenship wrote in charging documents. The victim said one man put a gun to his head and the other put a gun to his back, Blankenship wrote. They took his backpack, which contained an iPod Touch MPS and video player, various DVDs and CDs, and six or seven video games, Blankenship wrote.

One suspect was arrested based on his description, and that suspect directed police to Hunter's house, police wrote. Police recovered two pellet pistols and the iPod Touch at Hunter's residence, Blankenship wrote.

Hunter was being held Monday at the Washington County Detention Center on $60,000 bond, court records show. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for Aug. 14 at 8:30 a.m. in Washington County District Court.
