Columbus Police said they arrested two juveniles early Tuesday linked to a robbery at Rothschild Leadership Academy.

Authorities said the underage suspects, who were accused of criminal street gang activity, were involved in the Tuesday morning theft in which a 13-year-old boy was robbed of $20 cash in the school bathroom.

A corporal police officer said he was working security at the 1136 Hunt Ave. academy when assistant principal Brenda Merritt advised him about the incident later that day around 1 p.m.

No injuries were reported, according to a police report.

The robbery remains under investigation.
