Two teenagers, one from Hagerstown and the other from New York, have been charged as adults in connection with a July armed robbery when they stole two other juveniles’ belongings during what was supposed to be a trade for sneakers, according to Washington County District Court records.

Kyle Ian Dorsey, 16, of 12413 Beachley Drive in Hagerstown, was being held on $250,000 bond and Iydae Anthony Bostic, 17, of Mount Vernon, N.Y., was being held on $300,000 bond, court records said.

Both are charged with two counts each of armed robbery, criminal conspiracy and first- and second-degree assault, along with theft charges and use of a handgun in a crime of violence, court records said.

Dorsey also is charged with reckless endangerment.

The incident happened on the afternoon of July 27 near the football field at North Hagerstown High School, according to the application for statement of charges filed by Hagerstown police. Two males told police they had been victims of an armed robbery by two other males, the document said.


One of the alleged victims told police he had contacted a person by telephone about trading for a pair of sneakers, the charging document said. The alleged victims went to a location near the football field to meet for the trade.

Bostic grabbed a bag from one of the victims that contained sneakers, four hats and two iPods, the charging document said. Bostic handed the victim a bag containing only a pair of shorts, the document said.

Bostic and Dorsey then took $2 from the other alleged victim, the charging document said. One alleged victim then threatened to call 911 on his cellphone, at which time Bostic said he wanted the phone, the document said.

Dorsey pulled up his shirt to reveal a handgun in his waistband and Bostic took the phone, the charging document said. Bostic and Dorsey then fled on foot, the document said.

The victims provided descriptions of the two males who took their belongings and interviewed Dorsey on Tuesday and Bostic on Wednesday, the charging document said.
