Officers cuffed Barshaan Morrison and Thomas Williamson, both 17, Feb. 7 and charged them with robbery and criminal possession of a weapon, police said.

Cops allege the duo approached a 12-year-old boy from behind Jan. 31 at about 4 p.m., pinned him against a tree near the corner of Liberty Avenue and 111th Street and demanded his cellphone, according to a statement from the NYPD.
