Two men were arrested Friday evening on charges related to a robbery at the Front Royal skate park earlier in the month.
Corey Smith, 19, of Stephens City, was charged with malicious wounding, robbery and brandishing a firearm.
Connor Keane, 19, of Mount Jackson, was also charged with malicious wounding and robbery.
According to the criminal complaint, Smith, Keane and three other males approached Steven Brown at the skate park about money that was stolen the night before, and they tried to take what money Brown had on him.
When Brown refused to hand over his money, someone told Smith to “show him the heat,” documents state. Smith lifted his shirt to display a black handgun in his waistband.
Smith began to take the gun out of his waistband and one of the males, unnamed in the complaint because he is a juvenile, told Smith not to do that because there were kids around.
After putting the gun away Smith, Keane and the juvenile assaulted Brown while the other males watched, the complaint stated.
There were multiple witnesses who corroborated the criminal complaint, and the attack was broken up by an off-duty police officer, according to the complaint.
Smith and Keane are both being held without bond at Rappahannock Shenandoah Warren
Regional Jail. The juvenile is being held at the Northwestern Regional Juvenile Detention Center in Winchester.
Both men will appear before the Shenandoah Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court on Thursday before their hearings on Nov. 27.
