NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Kenner Police have arrested four teens accused of robbing a 17-year-old Gretna teen attempting to sell shoes he was advertising on social media.

Police say the teen planned to meet an interested party on Saturday in the 1400 block of 31st Street in Kenner. When the teen arrived, he was met by several teenagers, one who had a handgun and robbed the victim at gunpoint.

Following an investigation, four teens were arrested. Brian Ratliff, 17, and Marcel Green, 18, were both charged with armed robbery. Ratliff was also charged with possession of marijuana.
