3 arrested after 2 teenage tourists robbed at gunpoint while visiting Miami Beach

MIAMI BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) - Police have arrested three men accused of robbing two teenage tourists of their expensive valuables at gunpoint on a busy stretch of Miami Beach.

The robbery happened in the area of Collins Avenue near 11th Street just before 10 p.m., Monday.

A source close to the investigation said the teenage victims were in town from Beverly Hills, Calif. and were staying at the Loews Hotel.

According to the police report, the two victims were approached and followed before one man “put a black handgun to [victim’s] back and pinned him against a vehicle that was parked.”

One teenager was ordered to give up a pricey piece of outerwear. In their report, detectives said the crooks told one victim “to take off his red Moncler jacket. [Suspect] advised [victim] to give him his wallet.”

Police said in the report that the jacket was worth $2,000, and the wallet, a designer Givenchy billfold, was worth $500.

The crooks then fled the scene after robbing the victims, police said.

Early Wednesday morning, Miami Beach Police said they made three arrests in connection to the robbery.

Sharrod Montgomery, Daejon Cogdell and Derrick Page have been charged with conspiracy to commit an armed robbery, and two of the men were charged with armed robbery with a weapon.

Two of the men are said to be from Baltimore, and one is from New York.

They have since appeared before a judge in bond court.
