A 16-year-old from Atlantic City is facing a long list of charges after cops say he robbed a man at gunpoint early Wednesday morning.

Cops say the scene unfolded around 1:30 AM as officers responded to the 1300 block of Pacific Avenue for a report of an armed robbery.

The victim, a 37-year-old man from Atlantic City, was approached by a 16-year-old male and robbed of his bike at gunpoint.

Upon hearing the description of the suspect, personnel working in the ACPD's Surveillance Center recalled seeing someone fitting that description on a bicycle on Atlantic Avenue near the time of the robbery.
