Upon arrival officers contacted the victim, a 31-year-old Hispanic male, who advised that two people tried to rob him at gunpoint of his vehicle. 

During the incident the victim was struck in the head with a pistol and was treated at the scene and released by emergency medical personnel. 

A description of the suspects, who had fled the scene on foot, was given to officers.

A short time later a male and a female fitting the descriptions were contacted by officers in the parking lot of a business at the intersection of East Glenn Avenue and North Gay Street. 

The two were taken into custody and each is charged with Robbery 1st Degree and Assault 2nd Degree.

They are identified as Craig L. Stinson, age 17, and Kayla N. Barree, age 19, both of Auburn.
