Carpentersville police said Friday they have arrested two teenage boys in connection with an armed robbery that occurred earlier this week outside of Dundee-Crown High School.
Police arrested Angelo T. Brown, 17, of the 0-99 block of Oxford Road and a 14-year-old boy, both from Carpentersville. Neither one attends the high school, police said.

Both were charged with armed robbery and attempted vehicle theft. Brown was being charged as an adult while the juvenile courts are handling the 14-year-old's case.
Brown's bail was set Friday at $750,000, which means he needs $75,000 to get out of jail while his case is pending.
Officials said the teens robbed a 16-year-old Dundee-Crown sophomore at gunpoint at about 6 p.m. Tuesday in the school's south parking lot.
Police said the pair demanded the student's cellphone and keys, but only got away with the phone because they were possibly being scared off by an approaching vehicle. The two fled the scene on foot.
Carpentersville police have since agreed to increase patrols at the school during nighttime activities.
Brown's next court date is Jan. 4 at the Kane County Judicial Center. If he is found guilty of armed robbery, he could spend between six and 30 years in prison.
