Authorities say they have arrested two teens allegedly responsible for a gunpoint robbery that took place in the Settlers Lake Subdivision in north Forsyth on Monday evening.

According to Deputy Jenny Belafi, spokeswoman for the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office, Cody Mitchell Witt, 18, and Nicholas Alexander Nickey, 19, both of Forsyth County, were arrested Wednesday and charged in connection with the robbery.

The two men and another uncaptured individual have been accused of allegedly meeting with their victim at the Settlers Lake Subdivision clubhouse under the pretense of buying jewelry from her and holding her at gunpoint to steal cash, jewelry and other belongings from her.

Belafi said that it is currently believed that Witt wielded the gun during the incident. 

She said that no injuries were reported.

Court records show that Witt has had several run-ins with Forsyth County deputies in the past for charges including the possession of marijuana, driving with a suspended license and littering.

Records show that Witt has been charged with one count of felony robbery. Nickey has been charged with one felony count of being party to a crime.

Both men have been booked into the Forsyth County Jail under no bond, as of press time.
