A 29-year-old man faced a judge Thursday morning for an armed robbery along Atlantic Avenue near Hagan Ranch Road. 

Deputies charged Felex Joseph after locating him in someone’s backyard.

On Wednesday, a 15-year-old says Joseph and an unidentified juvenile robbed him of his clothes, two iPhones and $140.

The teen, who had just left the gym, says the suspects approached him with revolvers, robbed him and ran away.

Deputies searched in nearby neighborhoods for the suspects.  They say it was a K-9 that helped find Joseph. The victim later identified him.

Joseph’s bond was set at $100,000 and was charged with robbery with a firearm. Deputies say they also arrested the second juvenile suspect.
