BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

Three of the seven members of a gang accused of robbing two kids at knifepoint have had their bonds set.

Judge Kathleen Ritchey dropped the hammer on one defendant Friday, setting his bond at $10,000.

Sheriff's officials say the group calls itself "The Get-Up Boys."

Seven juveniles, ages 14 and 15, are accused of jumping two boys on Sunday afternoon.  Deputies say the teens used a knife and stole a cell phone and $20.

While one of the suspects was let go, three were given $10,000 bonds.  Three other suspects, including a girl, are still waiting to see the judge.

The prosecutor calls this case a strange one for a number of reasons.

"To have seven youths engaged in a crime at the same time is highly unusual," said Prosecutor Curtis Nelson.  "The fact that a weapon was used in this offense. The fact that this is a group that's going by a street name. This is unusual that what we deal with in juvenile."

At least two of the seven are eligible to be transferred to adult court.

"There are many considerations that you have to look to when determining a bond amount or bail amount and one of those things is the ability of the defendant to make bail," said Lilian Hangartner, who represents one of the suspects.

The District Attorney's Office has no intention of letting these kids get off lightly.

"If your going to carry these street names and engage in violent criminal acts, we will address it as a gang act," said Nelson.

The female suspect is slated to be in court Monday with the two others appearing later this month.
