Collier County deputies arrested an 18-year-old man, along with two juveniles for robbing one of their classmates.

It happened Monday on Sholtz Street, according to the police report, the teens barged into the home dressed in masks, but the victim recognized their voices.

"He said they put him in the bathroom, and then they put the gun to his head, and that's all he said because I think he is on shock," said a man who called 911.

18-year-old Vitalex Dortellus was arrested at Lely High, the two other suspects were arrested nearby after a brief search.

The scene became chaotic once deputies and helicopters responded.

"I had gone to the back, and two cops came with the dog or whatever and they asked me what do you have in the shed, and I said, I didn't have nothing but tools, and they asked me if I had someone in there, and I said that I didn't," said Isabel Resindiz, who lives nearby.

Resindiz knows one of the suspects, but doesn't know why he would want to hurt anyone.

"I don't know, I don't really know to be honest."

The victim in this case is expected to be ok.  The parents say they will press charges.
