MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Two 16-year-olds are under arrested, charged in connection with the robbery and assault of a elderly couple Tuesday night in at their Buckingham Drive home. Montgomery police officers responded to the scene and, within 20 minutes, had both suspects in custody.

Police have since charged Anthony Bernard Haynes and Courtney Devon Goines, both of Buckingham Drive, with two counts each of first-degree robbery and one count each of first-degree assault. The boys were taken to the Montgomery County Detention Center and are being held on bonds of $150,000.

Police say Goines and Haynes robbed and assaulted a 91-year-old husband and his 85-year-old wife. Both were transported to Baptist Medical Center South, where the wife was treated and released, and the husband was admitted for treatment of life-threatening injuries.

First-degree robbery is a Class A felony, punishable upon conviction by a life sentence or 10 to 99 years; first-degree assault is a Class B felony, punishable upon conviction by a sentence of two to 20 years.

Identities for the two suspects are being released, even though they are minors, because they're being charged as adults.

MPD says the investigation is ongoing.
