Three Collier County teenagers tried to rob a man walking home from work in Golden Gate on Sunday, pulling a BB gun on him before fleeing as a vehicle approached, Collier deputies said.
The teens all face a charge of armed robbery with a firearm. They are Ali Dominique, 18, of the 1900 block of 46th Terrace Southwest, Golden Gate; Tyler Larenz Hamilton, 18, of the 7800 block of Founders Circle, East Naples; and Dalton Chad Sousa, 19, of an unknown East Naples address. Hamilton and Sousa also face charges of committing a second-degree felony while wearing a mask or hood.
Deputies said the victim was walking at about 9 a.m. near 43rd Lane and 16th Place Southwest in northeastern Golden Gate when a vehicle carrying three men started slowly trailing him. The three men then got out of their 1998 Toyota Camry, approached the victim and pulled a silver gun, ordering the victim to give everything he had, an arrest report said.
The victim said he had nothing to give, and when a vehicle approached, the three suspects fled, the report said. Deputies said they later pulled over the teenagers near Green Boulevard and Santa Barbara Boulevard after identifying the Camry. A silver BB gun matching the description given by the victim was found in the vehicle.
Hamilton and Sousa were in jail with no bond set as of Monday afternoon. Bond information couldn't be found for Dominique.
