JONESBORO, Ark. – Jonesboro police are investigating an incident in which two 19-year-old men said they were robbed Sunday night of cash and cell phones by a group of teens they encountered in the 3700 block of Kristi Lake.

Officers were dispatched to 3704 Kristi Lake at approximately 10:11 Sunday night.
