Robbery Description:

In Arizona, robbery is a felony offense. Based on the circumstances, the robbery charge can fall into 3 different categories:

  • Robbery
  • Aggravated Robbery
  • Armed Robbery

A conviction of a Robbery charge requires proof that the defendant participated in:

  • Threatening to use force against a person with the intent to force them to surrender their property.
  • Took property belonging to someone else
  • Taking property that was from the person’s body or presence
  • Taking property against the other person’s will
