ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Five people are charged after a 16-year-old boy with autism was handcuffed, robbed, punched and shot with a BB gun in St. Paul.

The Ramsey County Attorney's office has charged three adults with robbery and kidnapping.

Twenty-four-year-old Anthony Ramos, 21-year-old Tiffany Clock, both of Columbia Heights, and 22-year-old Trenton Johnson of St. Paul were in court Friday.

Prosecutors say two teenage boys also are charged in juvenile court. Their names were not released.

According to the complaints, the victim was lured to a deserted space on Dec. 23. The St. Paul Pioneer Press reports the five pushed the boy to the ground and handcuffed him. One suspect shot the boy in the face with a BB gun.

The boy was robbed of his CD player, camera, cell phone and money.
