JUNEAU (AP) -- An armed assailant robbed a 16-year-old man of his cell phone, checkbook and socks outside a supermarket this weekend, Juneau Police said Monday.

The victim, who was not identified, told police he was confronted by a man wielding a handgun as he exited his vehicle outside the Fred Meyer shopping center.
