Five Collier teens arrested after armed robbery


NAPLES, Fla. — Five teenagers are facing felony charges in connection to a violent armed robery in Golden Gate on Tuesday, according to the Collier County Sheriff’s Office.

Detectives arrested Christopher Cruz, 18, Salvador Olmos, 19, Andre Dubon, 18, Emma Wallace, 16, and Nicole Knutowski, 16. The 27-year-old victim told detectives he was robbed at gunpoint and shot at outside a home on 800 block of Logan Blvd. North.

Police reports show the victim agreed to meet an acquaintance at a friend’s home to buy marijuana. While the victim was waiting outside on the sidewalk, a white car pulled up and two masked men brandishing firearms stepped out of the car.

The men pointed their guns at the victim and demanded money, which the victim gave them.

After the men returned to the car, one of them opened fire at the victim and sped away.

It’s unclear which of the teens police suspect were the two who stepped out of the car. The role the other three teens are suspected of playing is also unclear.
