A Jupiter teen was arrested after robbing a former classmate from Jupiter High School with a stolen handgun Sunday night.
Isaac Samuda, 18, faces charges of robbery with a firearm, and was turned into the Jupiter Police Department after the victim recognized him from a class they took together.
According to police, the victim, now 18, was driving his moped to a home on Riverwalk Lane, east of Central Boulevard and north of Indiantown Road, to meet his girlfriend when Samuda approached him with a large black firearm. Samuda put the weapon against the victim’s head and forced him to drive his moped away from public view.
Once Samuda stole the victim’s belongings, another man showed up and fled with Samuda over a wall that divides two developments. When police arrived, the victim said he recognized Samuda because they took a history class together. He also told officers that the second man who arrived with Samuda was wearing a Jupiter High School shirt.
K-9 units found a backpack near the crime scene that had a handgun inside, a school notebook with Samuda’s name written on it and Lagos’ stolen phone.muda
