What is considered robbery?
Essentially, robbery is considered any theft that involves force or fear
to obtain another's property or belongings. The prosecution has to
prove certain elements of robbery in order to convict a defendant of this charge.
The following must be present for it to be considered a robbery crime:
- Personal property was taken from another's possession
- The victim was immediately present for the crime
- The property was taken against the individual's will and through fear or force
- The defendant intended to take the property away in order to deprive the
owner of its value
However, other similar crimes can also be seen as robbery, such as breaking
into a house to steal property while people are there, resulting in the
use of threats or force to take property. In other situations, an individual
may be caught in the act by the owner of the property, causing them to
use threats of physical harm to get out of the situation. While an individual
did not intend to use physical force, they will now face elevated charges.
