Armed Robbery, Explained
The crime of robbery occurs when one individual uses force or the threat of force when taking the property of another individual. Robbery becomes armed robbery when the aggressor is armed with a dangerous weapon such as a gun or a knife. Because a weapon is involved, the penalties for armed robbery are greater than those for robbery. Armed robbery is a felony crime, and can be either classified as a state or federal offense.
