CRAVEN COUNTY -

A Craven County teenager is accused of robbing an autistic man.

Shalome Scott, 17, robbed Brandon Kinsey of more than $700, a laptop, and an iPod, according to deputies.

Kinsey is an adult with autism, deputies said.

Investigators say Scott then threatened Kinsey, warning him to not report the crime.

Scott remains in jail and so could not be reached for comment.

Scott faces more than a half-dozen felonies in connection with the case.
