CARROLL GARDENS — Two Brooklyn students were arrested last week after they took more than $1,700 from a fellow student at the school, officials and police said.

Between Jan. 15 and March 24, the two 16-year-old students took $1,720 from a 17-year-old student at the Brooklyn Secondary School for Collaborative Studies at 610 Henry St., police said.

The most recent incident occurred inside the school on March 24, according to police, where one of the teenagers grabbed the victim as he was leaving the building after dismissal. The other teenager then took $10 from the victim's wallet, police said.

The two boys then fled down the school’s hallway, police said.

A group of four students had been taking money from the victim for some months both on and off school grounds, according to Marge Feinberg, spokeswoman for the Department of Education.

All four students faced disciplinary action and two were arrested, she said in an email.

One student, arrested on March 24, was charged with robbery and grand larceny, according to police.

The other student, who was arrested on March 26, was charged with multiple counts of robbery, grand larceny, petty larceny, aggravated harrasment, stalking and criminal possession of stolen property, police said.

The Carroll Gardens school was founded in 2001 as a middle school and added high school grades in 2005, according to InsideSchools. It serves as an upper school and shares a building with P.S. 146 Brooklyn New School.

The school did not immediately respond to request for comment.
