3 teens arrested - 1 at school - after gas station robbery
JEFFERSONVILLE, IN (WAVE) - Three teenagers have been arrested in connection to the robbery of a Jeffersonville gas station last month.
"It was more aggressive than most," Jeffersonville Police Detective Todd Hollis said of the robbery.
Jordan Abney, Jordan Porter and Jordan Graves were arrested Thursday. Abney and Porter are both 18. Graves is 16. They all face several charges.
According to police the three robbed the Marathon Gas station at 2101 Hamburg Pike in Jeffersonville on Oct. 23. Police say two of the teens held one clerk at gunpoint and shot another, while the third teen waited outside in a vehicle.
The moment the gas station door opened, police say the suspects started shooting. Surveillance photos show one in a mask; both were armed with guns.
The clerk was not even given a chance to respond.
"In the video he is completely surprised, he gets knocked to the floor almost immediately," Hollis said.
Police say Graves was the one who shot the clerk, who has since recovered. Graves was a student at Male High School, where he was arrested.
The Louisville Metro Police Department is investigating another robbery that may be related to this crime. Police believe the same suspects may have been involved in an Oct. 22 robbery at a Circle K on Bardstown Road.
