A police statement said two people told authorities they had been robbed by four males. Police canvassed the area and located four individuals who fit the description given by the complainants.

Also indicted on charges of robbery were Michael Cournede, 19 -- who is also charged with misdemeanor possession of a box cutter, punishable by up to one year in jail -- and Alban Selimaj, 16. A third juvenile, 15, who was not identified, will be tried in Family Court.

Iler plays Anthony Soprano, Jr., or AJ, the son of mob boss Tony Soprano, on the popular HBO series. In the past season, the character faced the prospect of attending military school after he was caught vandalizing a swimming pool and stealing a geometry exam from his school.
