PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Portland police say a teenager armed with a machete robbed a man of his headphones.

Sgt. Pete Simpson says the victim called for help early Wednesday after the 17-year-old boy emerged from an SUV with the weapon and demanded the headphones.

After getting what he wanted, the suspect got back into the SUV and it drove away.

The vehicle, however, soon returned and a different person got out. He returned the headphones and apologized.

The SUV drove away for a second time, but was spotted by responding police.

The 17-year-old was one of six people in the vehicle. He was charged with robbery and lodged at the Donald E. Long Juvenile Detention Home.

Police recovered the machete.
