PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) -

Three teens are facing charges after an iPhone robbery in Northeast Portland.

It happened just before 10 Sunday night.

The victim told police that three boys pushed her and took her iPhone at Northeast 21st Avenue and Alberta Street.

Several officers, including a police K-9, searched the neighborhood and found two suspects at Northeast 22nd Avenue and Jarrett Street.

They found the third at Northeast 18th Avenue and Ainsworth.

The victim positively identified the suspects and the phone was recovered by police, officers said.

Two of the suspects are 15 years old. The other is 16.

During the investigation, detectives determined that one of the teens was also the suspect in an assault and robbery at Northeast 17th and Klickitat Street that happened last month.

In that incident, the victim was attacked and knocked off his bicycle, police said.

Police are reviewing other reports to determine if any of the three suspects may have been involved in other crimes in Portland.

All of the teens were taken to the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Hall.

Two of them face one count of second-degree robbery.

The third faces two counts of second-degree robbery and one count of third-degree assault.
