A 14-year-old Chalmette boy was beaten and robbed Monday by five teenagers
he knew, the St. Bernard Parish Sheriff's Office reported.

The teenagers took the boy's wallet, which contained $10, because they
thought he had earlier broken into the home of one of their relatives, Chief
Deputy James Pohlmann said. All five teens were arrested.

The 14-year-old was walking on Richelieu around 4:30 p.m. when the five
teenagers approached him, blaming him for the burglary of a home on Genie
Street that morning. The boy was struck in the face, kicked when he fell to
the ground, and struck several times in the head with a BB gun, Pohlmann

Jeremiah Blaise, 17, of Chalmette, was booked with armed robbery and
aggravated battery. He was in parish prison in lieu of $75,000 bond. Two
15-year-old boys and two 14-year-old boys also were arrested. Their names
were not released because of their ages.

In an unrelated incident, a Violet man was booked with armed robbery Sunday
night after a woman reported she was robbed at gunpoint while in a car
outside a Violet convenience store.

Jaron Brown, 18, was booked with armed robbery and is being held in lieu of
$100,000 bond, the sheriff's office said.
